Youth Education

Education is at the core of all Women in Aviation International (WAI) does. We know that to grow the aviation industry and increase opportunities for women, we must spark an interest in aviation and aerospace while women are young. 

WAI's mission is to increase the number of women involved in all areas of aviation and aerospace, and it starts with our youth education program, called Aviation for Girls.

Our youth program includes Aviation for Girls app, AFG Engage E-Learning, AFG Connect News, Aviation for Girls magazine, and Girls in Aviation Day. Each program is designed to reach youth through technology and peer engagement. There are age-appropriate individual tracks, fun activities, hands-on demonstrations, peer group work, and role models to encourage and inspire our participants.

All these youth resources are made available through WAI's free Junior membership for interested individuals under age 18.
