Fierce Leadership for Youth

The Fierce Leadership for Youth (FLY) Academy delivers culturally relevant college preparation, mentorship and supportive services to underrepresented minority students throughout New York City in order to increase college enrollment and retention rates as well as reduce the financial barriers to college attendance.


Through key partnerships between Hostos Community College and The Gates Millennium Scholarship Alumni Association (GMSAA) of New York, The FLY Academy utilizes the strengths, skills and resources of professionals of color who have effectively navigated higher education and now seek to support and mentor low-income high school students as they do the same.
