Foundation to Fly

-with Janelle Draper
Creating connection through imperfection is my ultimate goal. When each of us is brave enough to be vulnerable and real, we give permission for others to do the same.
Our Story

Everything began with…

Foundation to Fly is a non-profit organization empowering women and girls to be confident, self-assured leaders. Through programs, workshops, tools, and events, our mission solidifies that who you are is enough.

Roots and Wings is our after school program, for girls in grades 3-5, providing lessons rooted in social and emotional intelligence as well as universal traits of leadership. Girls learn to spread their wings and fly personally, socially, emotionally and academically!

Mess of a Mom is our workshop for mothers, in various stages of life, to connect with themselves, one another, and the community through shared experiences, storytelling, and an understanding that we’re all in this together.

-Jordan, age 8

“Roots and Wings is fun! In Roots and Wings I feel protected and safe! I love Roots and Wings!”

Kim, age 10

“Roots and Wings is a club that lets girls have fun and express themselves. It helps build my confidence.”

for girls

Roots and Wings

Roots and Wings is a program designed to guide girls to embrace who they are and that they matter. The program strives to empower girls to understand that they can make a difference in the world around them and that they are unique and special. Through lessons and conversations built around games, projects, creative expression, and the arts, girls celebrate who they are, their unique gifts, and their contribution to others. This program explores how our thoughts and actions, no matter how small, can change the course of a day or a lifetime.
