Who We Are?

Sesame Flyers International has been more than just a community-based organization. We are a family of passionate individuals committed to empowering the community we serve. From our youth development programs to our cultural events, we strive to make a positive impact on the lives of our youth and families in Brooklyn and beyond. Our motto to Love a Kid Today and Everyday, is more than just a motto, it's a way of life. We believe that every child deserves a safe and nurturing environment to grow, learn, and thrive. As we continue to evolve and meet the ever-changing needs of our community, we hold steadfast to our core values of youth empowerment, economic development and service, and love. Join us on our journey to make a difference in the lives of those around us. Together, we can build a better tomorrow for our community and beyond.

Our History

For 40 years, Sesame Flyers International has been a beacon of hope and support for the Brooklyn community and beyond. Our commitment to putting kids first has been the driving force behind our growth and success, and we are grateful for the insight and foresight of our founder Joseph Charles and all of our founding members. Through the dedication of our staff and members, we continue to serve the community and surrounding diaspora with the highest level of instruction and support. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, our fearless leaders have found innovative ways to keep our organization's obligations to the community and maintain our outreach. While we continue to define ourselves as a leader among our peers, our main focus remains on the progress and success of all children. As we move forward, we hold steadfast to our mission of providing a range of youth development, cultural, social welfare, and supportive services. We thank God for keeping Sesame Flyers International under his care, and we are grateful for the solidarity and support of our Board of Directors, Membership, Staff, and Community. We look forward to many more years of growth, strength, unity, and service.


The secret to happiness lies in helping others. Never underestimate the difference YOU can make in the lives of the poor
