We've launched a funding drive to support and expand its aviation education and career preparation programs.
Pathways to Aviation is solely funded by private contributions. As such, the organization does not receive tax-payer dollars to connect young people to the broad and amazing world of aviation. Every dollar is allocated to initiatives to inform, inspire, and engage aviation's next generation.
Throughout the month of April, board members and volunteers are asking community members to make contributions to continue to the 501c3 organization. Funds will be allocated to educational and career development programs, which impact young people seeking exciting aviation careers and the businesses seeking quality prepared talent.
"In just under two years, we've introduced aviation to over 10,000 K-12 students and many community college and four-year university students," says Eric Henry, board chair. "We invite the aviation, business, and local community to invest in the future of aviation's workforce and economic development by making a donation today.
