This honor for Sesame Flyers International, Inc. is for all the great work they have done over the past 33 years within the community.
Public Advocate James

different countries and from four (4) different NYC boroughs.
This is the time of year that teems with excitement. Spring temperatures thaw the winter chill and the sun brings more brightness into our days. Students turn their thoughts from the rigors of school work to the joy of outdoor play and time spent with close friends seeking new adventures in and around the neighborhood. With a growing calendar of graduations, weddings, proms, baby showers, and the early Curry Que, the air vibrates with the promise of summer and the enthusiasm it brings.
Sesame Flyers is part of the excitement of Spring too! Our Beacon, SONYC and Saturday School year programs are winding down and we are gearing up for our Summer Camp Programs with lots of enrichment, recreation, and trips planned around our wonderful City of immigrants.
Already, we’ve had Family Sports Day, the annual event that brings generations of Sesame Flyers members and participants to the Old Boys High Field to showcase their track and field skills. The ladies have begun their early morning Health and Fitness workouts at Paerdegat Park with Coach Matthew leading the way. You should consider joining them. It’s a wonderful way to energize your day and share some smiles along the way.
We’ve just about completed enrollment for our Summer Youth Employment Program. Thanks to the Mayor and the City Council, there will be an opportunity to enroll additional participants just before the program begins in July. That means it’s not too late to become a worksite so that you can be a part of the job readiness training our youth require to be competitive in the second decade of the 21st century.
As summer approaches, it also means that Mas can’t be too far away. Be sure to check out our Adult and Kiddie Band launches for this year’s Carnival experience. It promises to be life changing.
Each season we are here is a chance to improve on what we
accomplished last year: be more gracious, be more forgiving, have
greater integrity in our interactions with others, and show more
kindness. These goals should be our guiding stars as we wander
through the galaxy on this spaceship we call home, planet earth.

Beacon has had a successful After-School Program this Fiscal Year.
To date we’ve serviced over 1140 members of our community. One of
our notable success stories this year is our Math Tutorial Program,
led by our Instructor Mr. Gilmore Thomas. We worked with the
principal; Mr. Merve Williams to identify participants in our
program who needed assistance in Math. We enrolled 11 middle
schoolers. All 11 of our Middle Schoolers have improved at least one
grade level. We want to that Mr. Thomas for his hard work and
dedication to our youths. For our youth, we look forward to their
continued growth and success and we are very proud of you all.
We've had a fantastic school year!
