The connection to an aerospace career!
We hosted 12 aerospace career workshops in three locations for high school and college students. They each featured presentations by aviation executives, who share their experiences, descriptions of their company specialties, overviews of hiring practices, and career-focused advice. In addition to the presentations, students received a specially-designed career readiness workbook and career planning tips, such as skills identification, resume writing, interviewing tips, and networking instruction. Students prepared to meet aviation executives and recruiters at the large networking receptions (May), with resumes in hand, creating strong first impressions, conducting meaningful dialogues, and taking strategic next steps. Students finished the 2019 program with job shadowing, internship, and part and full-time employment commitments.
The 2019 program has received initial praise from two school districts, the State of Nevada Department of Education, and many aviation executives. The 2019 Futures in Aerospace workshops took place at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, Truckee Tahoe Airport, and Carson Airport. Click the links to learn more about each!
Aviation Career Week
In response to the success of our Flight Plans and the overall Futures in Aerospace program, a special Aviation Career Week culminated the Spring 2019 Flight Plan workshop series. The week of May 13-17 was highlighted by news and information, job postings, scholarship awards, and two networking receptions. We showcased the students at these receptions, giving each professional an opportunity to spend time with each student in an exciting networking format.

There’s a great deal of outstanding young people who either aspire to pursue incredible careers OR are ready to enter the workforce. Unfortunately, the majority of these talented students are not exposed to the many employment opportunities in the aviation industry. We provide the solution through our programs, led by our popular Futures in Aerospace program.
Pathways to Aviation works closely with interested students, building pathways toward continued education and/or direct workforce employment. The career mentoring program provides career readiness tools, best practices, and mentors, thus elevating their chances of pursuing their educational and career goals.
The Futures in Aerospace program connects students to industry, aviation executives, and college and career opportunities. Students obtain an understanding of their hard and soft skills, articulate those skills on their resumes, share the skills and passions through face-to-face interaction, and develop strong relationships with aviation leaders.
The donation you make allows Pathways to Aviation to introduce aviation to an increasing number of students and enable career-aspiring young people to fulfill their dreams.
