iFLY Youth Scholar's Program
Our mission is to produce the next generation of lifelong travelers by exposing middle school girls to international travel, financial literacy, leadership development, cultural competency and character building. We seek to increase low income student participation in international travel and education experiences by eliminating the financial burden of travel and instilling confidence within each of our scholars. We envision a world where all girls regardless of background or circumstance feel empowered and have the opportunity to explore, unite and learn from others around the globe. This year we are piloting our program with E.L. Haynes Middle School in Washington D.C. to provide 11 of their students the opportunity to travel to La Fortuna Costa Rica this June. Through our weekly after school programming we teach our iFLY Scholars HOW to travel. Our girls won't just take a trip, they learn how to convert money, develop a savings plan and communicate across different cultures.
