The FLY Program has been designed to encourage youth in making positive and safe choices. The program is a collaborative effort between the Fullerton Police and the Parks and Recreation Department. The goal of the FLY Program is to assist youth in becoming aware of their abilities, behavior, and values, qualities we believe are necessary in developing healthy and responsible young adults.
When: TBD (a parent meeting is held a week or two before, date to be determined)
Where: Richman Community Center
Who: The program targets children in two age groups: 8-10 and 11-13. Youths selected for participation in the program are recommended by the schools.
A 10 week program will be presented focusing on the following topics:
- Drugs (Tobacco, Alcohol, Marijuana)
- The Media
- Self Esteem
- Saying “No”
- Peer Pressure
- Good Decision-Making
- Conflict Management
The effectiveness, and a very important part of the FLY Program, requires parents to participate and support their child. Parents will provide a back-up component to demonstrate the principles being taught. Our goal is to provide a network of role modeling, mentoring and support, to inspire the child to make safe, healthy, and responsible choices.
