Support Statewide for Young Adults Aged 16 to 26: Taking Flight

“Never give up on yourself.”

— Taking Flight Youth

Taking Flight is a council of young adult leaders (aged 16 to 26) working to empower young adults as they prepare for independent lives, facilitate system collaboration, promote acceptance and education, and reduce stigma in areas including mental health, LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning or queer) and foster care.

Taking Flight helps facilitate and support the development of a young adult peer network in Maryland and organizes an annual young adult leadership retreat with other peer groups in Maryland. Taking Flight also brings the voices of youth to groups through panel presentations and an annual art project.
