Flyer Program

"FLYER" stands for Fort Lauderdale Youth Empowerment Retreat. This is our yearly youth retreat, where the youth come together to participate in experiential learning courses and team building activities. There are several themes that we choose to present during this three day event and organizations that participate as sponsors and/or presenters. If you are interested in participating in the FLYER program, please email us or call us.
