Wings over America is a newly created organization formed to address twin challenges: endangered birds of prey and at risk youth. The mission of Wings is to provide these youth with transformative opportunities to connect to environmental service, and in that process, inspire the reconnection to self. Amidst a growing national movement to re-envision youth rehabilitation, Wings is an innovative and forward thinking model offered at a critical time in these young people’s lives.
Wings brings together adjudicated youth and injured birds of prey. The relationship offers a mutual healing that can change the course of a young person’s life while giving the bird a second chance for survival. With the care and reconditioning provided by youth under the guidance of raptor specialists, youth will have a direct experience of resilience and hope as he releases the bird back to the wild. This pairing of bird and youth occurs in the short window as youth are preparing to return to their communities.
