BBBS Big Brother and Little Brother matches recently visited Phoenix Arising Aviation Academy – a local non-profit that aims to develop student interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) using aviation and technology.
The day started off with a powerful message from Phoenix Arising’s CEO and Program Director. They both shared their own personal stories of former mentors in their lives.
The Bigs and Littles then moved on to their first team building exercise – building 3D airplanes! The first Big and Little who completed the exercise were awarded the honor of being the first in the flight simulator.
As “Pilots” and “Co-Pilots” they all had the chance to learn to fly in various capacities, including standard single engine planes, WWII missions, drone flights, and more!
Thank you to Phoenix Arising Aviation Academy as well as our supporters for providing our Littles opportunities like these!
