A Year in Review: 2020

Early in the pandemic, as many school districts throughout the country shifted to virtual learning, issues such as the digital divide became apparent. The lack of access to technology especially in underserved communities became clear. The JetBlue Foundation and its Ambassadors quickly jumped into action to donate refurbished laptops to students in need so their STEM path wouldn’t be deterred. Throughout the summer and fall, the JetBlue Foundation created virtual programming with partners including Project Scientist, Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals, Artists for Humanity and Tools & Tiaras to continue to spark an interest in STEM and aviation among students. The JetBlue Foundation also created a pandemic rapid response granting cycle to support 12 previous grantees who were severely impacted by the pandemic.
