Sankofa is a word in the Twi language of Ghana that translates to “Go back and get it”. In a true effort to Sankofa our roots, we piloted FLYE’s first programmatic efforts at the high school of our Executive Director. For three years, we tested our methodology with student-athletes at Eleanor Roosevelt high school. In its first year (2014), FLYE served 48 student-athletes at Eleanor Roosevelt High School. In 2015 and 2016, FLYE served 95 student athletes at Eleanor Roosevelt High School.
FLYE creates innovative events specifically designed to meet the intersecting needs of young men of color, including providing safe spaces for discussing national events, workshops on financial literacy, and direct contributions of professional clothing to promote career readiness.
