OBAP - ACE Academies
JetBlue Aces Summer Camp with the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals
This summer the JetBlue Foundation once again brought one of its signature programs to life with a grants to its longstanding partner – the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals (OBAP) – to help encourage even more girls, women and people of color to pursue careers above and below the wing.
• The OBAP ACE Academy introduces aviation careers to students ages 14 – 18 from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the industry. During these programs, students participate in hands-on activities and have the opportunity to learn directly from JetBlue pilots and other aviation professionals. The JetBlue Foundation and OBAP hosted seven ACE Academy programs in Boston; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Los Angeles/Long Beach; New York, Orlando, Fla.; San Juan, Puerto, Rico and St. Thomas – U.S. Virgin Islands. In total more than 150 students participated in the JetBlue Foundation-funded OBAP ACE Academy programs.
