Foundation for Learning,
Athletics, & Growth

Enriching the lives of local youth and military families
through education, athletics, and community involvement.

Grass-roots community support and inspiration.

The Foundation for Learning, Athletics, & Growth (FLAG) is committed to inspiring youth, veterans, and their families to reach goals in academics, athletics, and personal/professional growth.

In addition to developing community programs, we collaborate with other community organizations and non-profits to support initiatives that directly impact youth, veterans, and families in need in our communities.

We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.

– Franklin D. Roosevelt

FLAG was formed to provide opportunities for learning and development, where diverse perspectives are valued and encouraged.  We look to foster personal accomplishments and effectively support our participants with the resources and support they need to succeed.  FLAG looks to challenge youth, helping them understand their goals, meet expectations, demonstrate accountability, and empower them to accomplish their set goals.
