Spring 2024

Flying Squads focus on learning through playfulness but also address the topics of social justice and youth rights. We use the power of play to examine the serious issue of how society impacts young people and how youth can impact society. By experimenting with and testing the world through playing, the young people involved learn a bit about themselves while exploring their city with a group of other young adolescents.
