I write to you today to ask for your help. I’m asking for you to make a contribution to Pathways to Aviation. We’re in need of mentors, feedback, and funding. Here’s why…
Our area is recognizing a boom in population growth. With it are new businesses and new job opportunities. I believe we have outstanding young men and women in our area, but they may not be ready for these jobs…or even know that they exist. With your help, we can change that.
Over the past two years, we’ve introduced aviation to 10,000+ K-12 students through workshops, field trips, career days, and special events. While not every student will actually pursue a career in the aviation industry, the skills they’re learning through our efforts prepare them for promising employment in other industries.
Employers seek new hires who have passion, strong work ethic, and basic hard skills. From there, the employers are willing to offer training, great wages, and opportunities for advancement. Pathways to Aviation’s programs are designed to introduce young people to industry and guide them along exciting career paths.
Through your involvement, we can double the number of students who are career ready, whether they go to college or directly to the workforce after high school graduation.

Thank you for considering a moment, a dollar, or an idea with us. We’re on a mission to answer the call of an informed, skilled, and ready labor force. Our focus is aviation, where major growth and employment needs are on the horizon, but we can easily affect many other industries.
