On Saturday May 12th Sesame Flyers hosted our 2nd annual Youth
Summit at the Bildersee Beacon. We are very proud to be in the
process of creating a new legacy with our young people through the
summit. The theme of this year’s summit was “Finding the Path.” Our
goal was to have our young people begin to think about and discuss
their future while still having a day of fun. Participants of the
summit got a chance to be involved in fun workshops and activities
as well ask questions during a panel discussion with Yandy
Smith-Harris, Majah Hype, and Young Devin. We look forward to next
year’s summit and hope that you will join us!
is a special month for us here at Sesame Flyers International. We
get the privilege to honor our Mothers for our annual Mother's Day
Dinner and put the final touches on our vision for the West Indian
Day Parade. We are also preparing for Summer Camp in our Beacon and
SONYC Programs. We also finish enrolling our teenagers into the
Summer Youth Employment Program. There is definitely a lot of
excitement, love and joy around here as it is my privilege to
continue to lead Sesame Flyers International into the summer season
that is fast approaching.
On May 31 Sesame Flyers
International partnered with our neighborhood Caribbean Women's
Health Association and Family Health Centers at NYU Langone to host
a Community Baby shower. This is our 2nd baby shower held at the
Clubhouse and things are getting bigger and better! Over 30
expecting moms participated in workshops geared towards healthy
pregnancy and delivery as well proper care of a newborn. All our
expecting moms to be were treated to a nutritious lunch for the day
and left with much needed baby care items. Sesame Flyers looks
forward to continuing our partnership and celebrating the joy of
many more Community Baby Showers in the future.

Jahlani Roberts is the Steel Pan instructor for the Bildersee Beacon afterschool program. His intelligence, passion for music and overall pleasant disposition makes him popular among staff and students alike. Mr. Roberts’ persistence, talent, and discipline have developed the Steel pan program immensely, transforming participants into amateur pannists within a short period of time. He has an innate understanding of how to connect with students cognitively and emotionally, creating a respectful yet friendly camaraderie in his classroom. This ability has alleviated some of the traditional barriers to bridging the generational divide between adults and adolescents, making Mr. Roberts an exceptional instructor and a valuable asset to the Sesame Flyers organization.
