In 2021, our FYA cadets honored the 343 firefighters that lost their lives on that day 20 years earlier by performing a tower run consisting of the number of flights those heroes climbed on September 11, 2001.
Emergency medical services
Cadets are empowered to save lives by learning first-aid and C.P.R. with our weekly volunteers from Medic Ambulance. These EMTs and Paramedics also serve as role models and excellent examples of what it takes to embark on the path to becoming a professional first responder.
At SFARY we believe that empowering youth with knowledge is the key to catalyzing their future success. SFARY provides active learning and career exploration opportunities for young people with future interests in a career as a first responder as a firefighter, EMT or paramedic. SFARY is committed to providing young people with the tools and support necessary to advance their own lives and engage their communities to promote collective resilience.
Outreach + Innovation
In the spirit of innovation, cadets in the SFARY Digital Media Arts group really embraced the power of digital storytelling to highlight “The Robbin Mackbee Firefighter Youth Academy”! Through a process of hands on learning, sustained commitment, creative expression, dedication and true collaborative effort, the team was able to use their voices and and creative vision to provide a glimpse of what makes this program so special.
