Student Ambassador Program Launched
The Foundation is launching a special internship program for middle and high school students seeking experience in the world of aviation. The internship fosters a very reasonable time requirement to perform duties associated with earning credit and creating viable impact through the intern’s efforts.
Forward this to a young person who might want to serve as the campus representative for his or her school.
The Reno Air Racing Foundation, doing business as Pathways to Aviation, was founded as a 501c3 non-profit organization in 2004. The Foundation’s purpose is to encourage and support young men and women to pursue studies and careers in aviation, aerospace and aeronautics; to perpetuate the memory and spirit of aircraft, general aviation and air racing and their places in history; and, to promote and establish relationships with organizations that share and support our common purpose.
