Executive Director's Message

I am thrilled to share this monthly newsletter with you and update you on all the exciting things happening at Sesame Flyers International. I am overjoyed that we successfully held our first-ever legislative brunch. This event was an enormous opportunity to engage with our local elected leaders and discuss the impact Sesame Flyers has in the community. I am also happy to report that the Board of Directors met recently for our annual retreat, where we were able to come together and reflect on our achievements and make strategic plans for the future.

I am proud to say that our afterschool programs are thriving and truly embodying our motto of "Love a Kid Today and Every Day!" The dedication and passion of our staff and volunteers is truly inspiring. As Executive Director, I am committed to ensuring that Sesame Flyers International continues to serve as an ambassador of culture in our community. We are proud to offer programs and events that showcase the diversity and richness of Caribbean culture.

Finally, I am looking forward to greeting all of you at our annual Caribbean Essence Awards and Showcase, where we will celebrate our 40th anniversary milestone. This event promises to be a spectacular celebration of our organization and the community we serve. I look forward to seeing you there.

Afterschool Spotlight

Ms. Walker is a wonderful mother and very engaged in her STEM program. Her students are extremely engaged in class and make wonderful projects that the kids are so excited to talk about and share with anyone who walks in the classroom. Ms. Walker's students do not want the class to end once they hit her room. Recently, I can remember one student who was in tears because her parents came to pick her up early. I am always so excited to see what's next when it comes to Ms. Walker's STEM program.

First Legislative Brunch at Sesame

Sesame Flyers International held its first ever legislative brunch on February 3rd at our main headquarters and Cultural Center in celebration of Black History Month and our 40th anniversary of community service. The event brought together local, state, and federal elected officials to offer their support for Sesame Flyers and hear about our financial needs. The keynote address was given by Congresswoman Yvette Clarke, who emphasized the importance of organizations like Sesame Flyers International in creating a positive impact in the community. The attendees also enjoyed delicious Caribbean food and the opportunity to meet in East Flatbush, fostering a sense of community and collaboration.

The legislative brunch was a successful event that showcased the impact of Sesame Flyers on the community and its continued commitment to serve the individuals and families in the community. The support of our elected officials shows the significance of Sesame’s mission and its commitment to providing much-needed services. Sesame Flyers International continues to make a difference in the community, and the legislative brunch was a testament to our success and impact. We are grateful for the support we have received. We look forward to serving the community for many more years to come.
