Kira Blair, BBYF Founder, 2016 - Present (Not a voting Board Member)
Building Bridges Youth Farm is Kira Blair’s dream for the youth and community of Flagstaff. Kira worked with youth in the juvenile justice system for five years and, during that time, she dreamed of a world in which these kids could
transcend the barriers and traumatic experiences in their lives. Because she raised animals, she believed that animals could impact the lives of the youth she worked with. Kira has committed herself (and her family) to realizing her dream. Luckily, she has shared this dream with all of us. Our youth will be stronger and healthier because of the lessons and opportunities that the Farm will provide. When our youth are stronger and healthier, our entire community will flourish and will be healthier.
