Our Strategic Approach
Our model harnesses the power of long-term, personal relationships to help young people succeed. We partner with schools and institutions, where a majority of them served will be first-generation aviation professionals. Each year, we recruit a number of volunteers who commit to mentor a number of students for a period of time.
YACA highlights its suite of evidence-based programs that have been proven to change young people’s attitudes and behavior towards building essential frameworks that will help establish a well defined and purposeful path in building their careers through education and practical training in field work.
We are working to establish an effective, comprehensive and national career guidance strategy with families, schools and communities to help young professionals be effective and relevant people the aviation industry.
Mentoring for career success
At YACA we do our best to work in partnership with institutions that share our vision. Last year, 100% of our Corporate Partners renewed their commitment with us.
Across our society, talent is equally distributed — but opportunity is not. YACA’s holiday camp programs are tailored to give every young person a fair chance to interact and gain real experience and at the same time have the time of their lives.
