NAYR Foundation (Aviation) – Post #8395 & Club #8396

NAYR Foundation partners with the Exploring program to teach children and young adults about all things aviation. Students experience the aviation industry with hands-on projects, guest speakers, behind-the-scenes tours and simulations to better understand the opportunities available. Youth also learn of several educational opportunities available to help jump-start their career aspirations. Participants will learn the importance of seizing opportunities to build their resumé and participate in two community service activities. 

The fees paid for this opportunity will also cover costs for quarterly events. The NAYR Foundation offers events to the public and includes all food and transportation associated with the Post activities.
