Dylan's Wings of Change fulfills its mission through its programs. We founded the Wingman Youth Leadership program in 2015, starting with 3 schools enrolled. Each year the program grew and in 2020 it was used in more 50 schools for social & emotional learning and school climate transformation.
When the COVID pandemic began raging across the US, all in-person programming was put on hold. We responded by creating Wingman Educator to enable teachers, instructors and coaches to deliver the same outcomes that the youth led program had achieved, together with virtual activity options.
The pandemic also inspired us to create Camp Wings of Friendship with our Florida based partner The Friendship Journey; a unique year-round virtual experience for people of all abilities.
As the world continues to adapt to the pandemic, we are excited to return to in-person programming, adapted to keep everyone safe. We have further expanded our programs again to offer Experience Workshops for both children and adults, with content tailored to an organizations specific needs. Through 2021 we welcome more schools to the Movement and by the end of the year Wingman Youth Leadership was active in 42 schools across 27 districts in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey.
