* * * Welcome to the Fontana Leadership Intervention Program Website! * * *
The Fontana Leadership Intervention Program (FLIP) is founded upon a partnership between the Fontana School Police, City of Fontana, Fontana Police Department, and Fontana Unified School District. The 16 (sixteen) week program offers “at-risk” teenagers an opportunity to experience a unique educational environment which will positively impact the rest of their lives. Prior to entering the program, potential applicants must be referred to the program and submit an admission package. The package will be screened by the Admissions Board and suitable applicants will be assigned a program start date in the next available class. Parents and students selected for FLIP MUST attend the parent orientation session.

Students enrolled in FLIP will be required to attend 16 (sixteen) 8-hour (eight) classes held at the Fontana Unified School District on consecutive Saturdays. These training classes will focus on topics which include violence prevention, drug and alcohol resistance, ethics, leadership skill development, teamwork and other related fields. The course curriculum will be facilitated by high-quality instructors and include field trips to enhance education at various locations. In addition, participants will attend daily morning meetings with the school resource officer assigned to their respective schools and be subject to other opportunities for team building.

Upon successful completion of the FLIP program, students will participate in a formal graduation ceremony which will include a keynote address by a recognized community leader. High school students who successfully complete the program will also earn 5 elective credits toward graduation and become part of an on-going partnership to help ensure their future success.
