As travelers, we know what a privilege it is to be able to explore the world.
Not everyone gets that chance.
Today’s education system provides very little in the way of global education, and many struggling schools and teachers have little or no opportunity to offer their students access to resources that can provide any type of international education.
FLYTE was created to change that.
Since FLYTE’s creation in 2015, FLYTE has sent over 50 students on four transformative trips to Mexico, Cuba, Ecuador, and Guatemala. Each student returns with their own unique story about how their journey changed their life.
This year we’re so excited to empower another group of students by sending Envision Academy to Colombia!
Based in Oakland, California, Envision Academy serves first and second generation immigrant students that come from economically disadvantaged communities. The school cultivates its students to become rigorous and reflective thinkers who uphold the school’s Core Values of respect, community, justice, growth, and discipline both in and out of the classroom.
In Colombia, they will work with local schools, explore the cultural connections between Colombia and Oakland, and bring all that they’ve learned from these experiences back to their own community.
We need you to make this happen.
Join us for our first in person event to help us raise $10,000 to send this school to Colombia.
Join us on November 27th, 2018 (Giving Tuesday) at RAISE NYC (416 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10016) from 7 to 9:30 pm.
Tickets are $150 USD.
Not only will all proceeds from this event directly fund all the board and lodging costs for Envision Academy’s trip to Colombia (you will literally be making this trip a reality), but you’ll also be mingling with other amazing, generous travelers (like yourself!).
By bringing students on these transformative trips, we’re opening up a whole world of possibilities for them and unleashing their potential to positively impact our society.
We’d love for you to be part of this movement.
