Our Mission

Future Leaders in Action (FLIA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that cultivates leaders and strengthens youth-focused nonprofits by recruiting emerging social sector leaders, known as fellows, to work full-time, on-site with one of our partner organizations.  

Future Leaders in Action places fellows in youth-oriented nonprofit organizations to implement enrichment programs which cultivate their leadership skills.

Fellows gain meaningful and impactful work and leadership experience, while our partners gain the work of a dedicated fellow in one of the following areas of focus:

 

Fellows research and develop programs that help children and youth develop leadership and social skills, self-confidence, and other tools to succeed in the classroom, the workplace and beyond.
