In order to sustain our programs, we rely heavily on the donations an d support of people like YOU who are passionate about travel, global citizenship, and youth education. There are several ways to get involved with FLYTE:
Make a Donation – Our program runs on your support! Please consider making a donation to help our organization fund trips and help kids broaden their horizons. (We also can work personally with you if you would like to donate frequent flyer miles to our program.) You can make a donation to our current campaign by clicking here. We’re currently fundraising for a the Excelsior Academy in Newburgh, NY to go to Ecuador in June 2017! We are a registered non-profit with 501(c)3 status, so your donations are tax deductible.
Volunteer – We’re always looking for volunteers to help us spread the word and carry out our mission. We’re a tiny organization and volunteers allow us to ensure the majority of our funding goes to the kids who most need it. We’re always in the eye for people to help us organize events, spread the word, help us with fundraising, donor communication, and everything in between. We are currently looking for people who are interested in getting involved with FLYTE as members of our FLYTE Advisory Board.
Help us spread the word on social media – Our students invite you to travel along with them! By liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter and Instagram, you’ll get to pack your bags and experience the trip in real time. We also share all of our latest news and updates, as well as interesting travel tips, global education info, and upcoming events that you can share online with your friends, family, and fellow travelers! By sharing out about our organization, you help us create awareness and get people excited about helping our students take FLYTE. Head to our pages to help us out!
Intern with us – We are always looking for interns to help us. We offer part time internships for individuals located in the NYC area that can be eligible for school credit. We’ll teach you the ins and outs of running a non-profit and promise you won’t get stuck doing menial jobs (no getting us coffee here!) You’ll be working side by side with us and be actively involved in our campaigns and programs. If you are interested, please click here. We’re currently looking for interns for this summer, 2017. Applications are due May 5th.
