About this Event

Please Note:

Every effort is being made to keep on track with the current schedule for our summer programs, however, we will not be responsible for any alterations in scheduling or cancelations as a result of School closures or Covid-19.

Youth Taking Flight is a grass roots organization providing engaging learning experiences for youth ages 12 - 19 in the fields of Aerospace and Aviation and promoting youth participation in every aspect of program planning and delivery.

Youth Taking Flight was created to encourage greater diversity and increased participation of youth as well as young women in the fields of Aviation/Aerospace and in response to the growing demand for grads in these industries. We hope to:

  1. Equip young people to become lifelong learners and develop essential and transferable 21st century skills to succeed in a rapidly changing, globalized economy.

  2. Provide affordable/ subsidized programs that will encourage the participation of youth regardless of economic status.

Dear Youth Taking Flight Program Attendee,

We hope you are staying safe during these very challenging times.

We have had to under go a great deal of changes in order to still be able to offer you quality STEM programing in Aerospace and Aviation.

As a result of government regulations and getting late confirmation from our program facility due to Covid-19 we are announcing the following changes to our Summer Camp.

1. The Youth Taking Flight Program dates have been altered and now will be:

- For ages 12 - 15 Group #1 - July 20th - July 31st, 2020.

- For ages 16 - 19 Group #2 - August 4th - August 14th, 2020.

2. All accepted participants will be provided with Personal Protective Equipment upon arrival at the camp each day.

3. All accepted participants will have their temperatures checked before entering the school facility each day.

4. All participants will be expected to use hand sanitizers regular throughout the day.

5. The tables, chairs and equipment will be sanitized each day before and after use.

6. A maximum of 10 people will be in the facility at all times.

I hope these changes to the program are not too daunting and that you will still be able to join us for our summer camp which is truly a one of a kind experience.

Thank You,

Youth Taking Flight Team
