Santa Barbara, Calif., October 25, 2016— The innovative aviation nonprofit A Different Point of View (ADPOV) is hosting a barbeque fundraiser on November 12th from 1:00pm-5:00pm at the Santa Barbara Airport. Airline captains, flight attendants, aircraft mechanics and other community leaders will be on hand throughout the afternoon. Flight lessons and full motion simulator rides will be available for a minimal fee. All proceeds go to A Different Point of View for student scholarships and capacity building for their year-round programs.
ADPOV gives youth hands-on training in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) as well as leadership and self-awareness training. This uniquely focused nonprofit allows students to explore aviation and the many career paths available in the field. The mission is to engage, inspire and transform youth using flight lessons as a launching pad. Through aviation education and mentoring youth are shown a world they’ve never seen before. Students throughout Santa Barbara County participate in the Aviation Career Program and year-round Discovery Days.
“We encourage a diverse student population as we want to mirror the world in which we live. Our students come from a myriad of organizations who reach out to us and request our services. Putting anyone in the captain’s seat of an aircraft and teaching them how to fly is the most powerful experience, possibly on the planet! We feel that learning to fly should not be for the priviledged few as it engages and inspires youth to seek new opportunities and gives them the ability to believe that they can succeed in the world,” said Mike Linhart, Board President,
A Different Point of View.
