About Flanbwayan

The Flanbwayan Haitian Literacy Project has assisted hundreds of Haitian newcomer youth in NYC public high schools since it was founded in 2005. We ensure Haitian newcomer youth 14-21 years old are appropriately placed in high schools that support their ability to remain in school and graduate. Our out of school time programs develop their capacity as productive citizens through youth and leadership development activities that build their self-esteem and nurture their voices.
