Elevate Workshop

We choose a select number of top aviation education programs (both schools and nonprofits) from across the country to participate in our Elevate workshop. Educators apply to the program and are selected based upon meeting the outlined requirements.

Each year, we host two workshops to bring together the leadership teams from selected participants, during which we cover critical topics such as:

  • Funding opportunities
  • Best practice implementation
  • Board creation and leadership
  • Technology

This type of collaboration improves the quality of all programs and significantly shortens the time needed to launch new initiatives. Students benefit from higher graduation and program success rates.

As a participant in the program, you can expect the following outcomes:

  • Introductions to and inspiration from peers
  • Freely exchanged best practices between programs with similar missions
  • Mentoring and Coaching
  • Access to proven tools to improve your team’s communication and implementation
  • Unique content that is taught by subject matter experts from all industries

In addition, Elevate serves as a testing environment to develop new and better education programs. The learnings from these experiments can then be applied on a larger scale to aviation programs nation-wide.

Who is eligible to participate

First and foremost, we choose aviation education programs that exhibit a strong desire to improve their specific program and aviation education as a whole. We strive to breakdown the siloed state of aviation education and build a collaborative environment. Participants must be willing to share successes, best practices and more. Currently our focus is primarily at the high school level.
