The Fly By Light Youth Ambassador Program is an innovative youth program that emphasizes leadership, compassionate communication, effective conflict resolution, and self-love as pathways to personal growth, health and wellness. Youth are engaged in activities that strengthen skills that equip them with the abilities to bring their “light” to their own communities, building peaceable environments that promote overall wellness. Music therapy and artistic expression are at the core of instruction.​

Objectives of the Fly By Light program are:
-Youth build an appreciation and love for nature
-Youth build an ability and desire to handle conflicts peacefully
-Youth gain an understanding of music and art as tools for self-expression and cultural change
-Youth hone their ability to critically engage with their environment and people of different racial, ethnic, socio-economic and cultural perspectives
-Youth feel an increased feeling of self-confidence, value, worth, and empowerment
-Youth develop a personal set of life goals
