HISTORY

Future Leaders & Young Entrepreneurs was Founded in 2013 by Cortni Grange and Sam Sesay (emeritus), two former student athletes. Sam and Cortni ran into each other at a gym more than a decade after the two graduated from Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt, MD. One conversation during that workout led them to form an organization that actively creates new realities for young people involved in athletics. FLYE’s first 3 years of programming was conducted at Sam and Cortni’s alma mater, Eleanor Roosevelt High School (ERHS). In that time, FLYE worked directly with over 90 student athletes educating and empowering around such topics as: entrepreneurship, leadership, gentlemanly behavior/etiquette, financial literacy, college preparation and health and wellness.
