FLY BY NATURE FOUNDATION

We're Advocates for
Youth Wellness

Our Allignments and Approaches

Fly By Nature Foundation takes holistic approaches on how we engage with youth that participate in our programming. We offer support and resources for parents and caregivers to help them navigate through the obstacles and challenges they face. We create safe spaces for youth to be their authentic selves without any judgement. We want to help improve school culture with the assistance of our Mental Health Professional partners and our Co-Flier Facilitators. We value the voice, ideas and concerns of your youth and give them the opportunity for student led activities apart of our programming.  Below are some of our Excel with SEL curriculum alignments and approaches we value. 

  • Aligned with the 5 Collaborative for Academic Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) Core Competencies

  • Aligned with People Centered Engagement

  • Aligned with Healing Centered Engagement

  • Aligned with Positive Youth Development

  • Trauma-Informed Development

  • Aligned with Restorative Justice Practices and Approaches

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.

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
