SESAME FLYERS INTERNATIONAL INCORPORATED
For over a quarter century, residents of East Flatbush and Canarsie have relied on Sesame Flyers International, Inc. for year-round programs that preserve culture, tradition and values - and we have delivered. This year, over 7,000 individuals and counting, will come through our doors in search of some form of assistance. Whether it is tutoring young students, providing safe and nurturing spaces for children to play during the summer, organizing youth-led community service activities, job readiness programs, providing case management and counseling for families in crisis, giving adult learners access to GED programs and computer technology, or celebrating the rich traditions of Caribbean nations, Sesame Flyers touches almost all aspects of community life.
Sesame Flyers is also a fixture at the West Indian American Labor Day Parade, and is a thirteen-time winner in the parade’s Large Band category. In the past, the West Indian American Labor Day Parade has drawn over 3.5 million spectators. Also a source of pride is Sesame Flyers' part in World Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Children's Museum exhibit featuring the many cultures of the borough, where visitors can visit the Sesame Flyers Mas Camp and learn about the culture through trying on costumes.
