About FLYTE

The Foundation for Leadership and Youth Travel Education (FLYTE) is a nonprofit providing funding, teacher support, and itinerary and trip planning for high school students in underserved schools to travel and expand their cultural, academic, and social horizons. Today’s education system provides very little in the way of global education, and many struggling schools and teachers in underserved communities have little or no opportunity to offer their students access to resources that can provide any type of experiential international education.
