Summary

Youth Inspiration Nation's mission is to provide motivation, inspiration and education through aviation. We teach kids the fundamentals of flight, the science behind keeping an aircraft in the air, the recognition of distinct types of weather phenomenon, test their skills with building activities, and actually teach them how to fly in static and full motion flight simulators. Aviation education improves focus, builds self-confidence and exposes kids to a multitude of STEM related professions.

Challenge

We need more powerful programs for underprivileged kids in our communities. Aviation education fits the bill perfectly. We need more pilots to fill future gaps in the aviation industry. Careers in aviation are expected to be one of the most in-demand over the coming years. According to Boeing, over the next two decades the global demand for aviation professionals will reach over 790,000 for pilots and 609,000 for technicians. Aviation education allows kids to make the skies their playground!

Solution

Ensuring all children and youth thrive as they move through school and into their adult lives requires that they have the opportunity to develop the skills and competencies that will help them land their first job, navigate and overcome the challenges, keep positive relationships and make good decisions. Aviation has the ability to hold their attention, build self-confidence, and exposes them to a multitude of STEM related, high paying jobs within the transportation industries.

Long-Term Impact

Through the use of our unique aviation program, 5th and 6th grade students will learn how to fly an airplane before they learn how to drive a car. The purpose of the program is not to get everyone in a real airplane, the purpose is to show these kids what they're actually capable of accomplishing. This will inspire more kids to pursue classes and electives that are STEM related as they move through Jr High, High School and beyond.
