Our mission is to encourage youth involvement in aviation as an alternative to drugs, gang violence, and other self-destructive activities . Its programs are designed to positively influence the lives of youth by reducing juvenile delinquency, increasing school performance, and serving as a highly reproducible model for other communities across the country.
When we started Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum or 'TAM’ for short, our purpose was simple: teach inner city kids about flying, support their academic achievement, and instill in them the importance of their education.
Although we do so much more now, at our core, this purpose remains the same. We use aviation enrichment as a catalyst to inspire, motivate, and change young minds, while on the ground, we support student academic achievement through our partnerships with area schools, one-on-one tutoring, and college preparation.
When a youth joins TAM, they not only join a family, but become part of a cultivation process designed to empower them to excel in their personal, academic, and future professional lives.
We believe this is how you change a community for the better-by bettering the next generation. When all is said and done, we envision a place where all community youth receive the support they need to graduate high school, go to college, and become future contributors in the fields of science, aeronautics, technology, and to the well-being of society.
