I am 13 and a part of Free Your Wings. Ms. Aja is such a good person and I’ve learned so much from her. I really enjoy the times we go out and help the community like doing neighborhood cleanups and stuff
FYW Sweep the Community event was a blast! I never thought I could have so much fun picking up trash. The mentors turned a community chore into a fun activity, and I enjoyed it
I enjoyed the Pizza and the certificate I received after participating in Sweep the Community Cleanup
My daughter is always asking when the next event is! She loves giving back to her community
The FYW mentorship program gave me the ability to express myself and share my personal stories without the fear of judgement or bias. I hope to be a mentor one day so that I can help people the way they helped me.
“I am 27 years old, and I am a single mother. I love that the Executive Director of FYW is just as involved as her staff. She provided me with words of encouragement, resources and support through my homeless crisis. I thank god for advocates like her!!!
Being affiliated with Free Your Wings is very rewarding. We don’t just talk about doing things and making changes, we actually get out in the community and make a difference, rather it’s cleaning the community or introducing young adults into world and life they’ve never encountered before. We aim to please youth, in our words, our action, and in our hearts.
