"A wonderful organization called Fly Girls Bessie Coleman is teaching young adults how to fly and achieve their dreams in aviation. Founder Jacqueline Withers along with an esteem list of volunteers and sponsors, assist the teenagers in achieving their dreams.
The vision started for Ms. Jacqueline Withers, who is from Chicago, and is the director of Take Flight Leadership, with her painting murals of the Tuskegee Airmen and she wanted to expound on that vision to include children of all races in helping them live out their dreams and expectations.
Through this journey, the Fly Girls have already visited Chicago and Las Vegas just to name a few of the places they have been. The Fly Girls have also won scholarships that have taken them to Alabama, Wisconsin, and Dallas. The Fly Girls are also authors, with self-publishing their first book, which can be found on www.blurb.com."
