FLY BY NATURE FOUNDATION

We are Advocates for
Youth Wellness

Fly By Nature Foundation is a DC-based 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that empowers DC area youth, school staff, and caregivers by strengthening their knowledge, skills, and attitudes to heal from childhood trauma through our Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum.

Using the Collaborative for Academic Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) 5 Core Competencies,

we have designed two main curricula around healing-centered engagement and positive youth development.

Our trauma-informed approach helps caregivers, families, schools and students align with a common understanding around healing.

 

Please take a look at our EXCEL WITH S.E.L. program which strategically reinforces youth wellness in all major areas, and secondly, our DREAM & STEAM ACADEMY, which utilizes all aspects of Science, Technology, Engineerings, Arts & Agriculture, and Math to creatively help youth expand their horizons outside of their daily routine. Both programs can be implemented in your school or through your organization. Click Here to find out how to partner with Fly by Nature Foundation!

OUR STORY

VICTOR TERRY, FOUNDER

Because I suffered from childhood trauma, PTSD and anxiety, I wanted to create curriculum to help raise awareness. Using evidence-based Social Emotional Learning Framework, we were able to address some of the major pain points for youth in the District of Columbia.

Recognizing Trauma

SOCIAL MEDIA

Although social media can strengthen the bonds teens have with existing friends or establishing new friends, which reduces isolation and loneliness. It also increases the exposure of cyber-bullying
