Fantastic opportunity for youths to: - learn LEADERSHIP skills, - participate in COMMUNITY service, - become familiar with AVIATION technology, - access opportunities to receive FLIGHT instruction - become trained volunteers for emergency services, search and rescue, radio communications... and so much more. Kids develop life friendships, discipline and good habits, and a natural disposition to always be there for the community. Adults can help in every possible way: - TEACHING all sorts of skills (leadership, technology, rocketry, flight instruction, etc.), - COORDINATING events and community service opportunities, - providing ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT - act as MEDIA COORDINATORS: publish articles and pictures, help with website development, social media, etc. - CHAPERONE, COOK, ORGANIZE CARPOOLS... There is an opportunity for everyone to help! Great group of people!!
