August 2009 “The Purpose”

Take Flight is a non-profit organization founded in 2009 to assist low-income families with financial education, workforce development, and life skills. The organization focuses on the holistic development of children and their families. Our youth mentoring programs aim to build mental, physical, social, and emotional well-being. We focus on the whole child, creating youth wellness programs that are geared towards their overall development.

April 2012 “Closer To Dream”

In 2015, Take Flight collaborated with more organizations to reach more families. We partnered with Wraparound Maryland, a non-profit organization that helps the youth realize their goals using an individualized, strengths-based, team-based, and outcome-oriented approach that values the family’s perspectives.

We also partnered with Collaboration Council and Excel Beyond the Bell to provide after-school programs in Montgomery County Schools. We provided educational and development services to families and youth in the Greater Washington DC area through our collaboration with YMCA.
