About FLY

 

Our For the Love of Youth (FLY) Project is funded by the Government of Canada under the Supports for Student Learning Program.

 

For the Love of Youth (FLY) focuses on helping the youth be exposed to numerous opportunities that will enable them to soar high and achieve their goals. Through FLY, we aim to increase the youth's engagement in their studies, improve attachment to their learning, build strong social networks, set educational and career-related goals, and get access to online support and technologies.

 

The Problem

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the lives of youth in many ways. There are many adjustments to transition to online learning, and not all youth students are ready for this abrupt change. Due to this, there is now an increasing number of students at risk of dropping out of school. In addition, the lack of access to after-school programs such as tutoring, counselling, and other social support during the pandemic pushes them to set aside their education.

 

Due to these problems, The Expert Collective developed the For the Love of Youth (FLY) Project.

For International Students

 

Canadian youth, international students, and youth newcomers have a link to countless opportunities when studying in Canada. They can attend post-secondary schools, many of which are globally recognized, with comparably lower tuition fees than other English-speaking countries. 

 

The number of international students and youth newcomers in Canada continues to grow because of the working and living options available to them after graduation. Aside from access to high-quality education, they are also granted the same rights and opportunities as Canadian citizens, with the exception of voting. 

 

We want to help youth be properly guided and educated to strive for their future goals and accomplishments. To help them become successful in Canada, The Expert Collective provides the following services:

  • career counseling

  • post-secondary school placement

  • student grants and loan applications

  • practicum placement

  • Canada Summer Jobs placement

  • internship and apprenticeship opportunities

  • peer tutoring and counselling
