Volunteer Opportunities

The Members of JEFA over the years, have generously given back to the community by volunteering their time and talent to Non-profit organization, flying events, Hospitals, and Charities.

 Here are the 2018 Volunteer Opportunities for all JEFA members;

alt       EAA Young Eagles

The EAA Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 to give interested young people, ages 8 – 17, an opportunity to go flying in a general aviation airplane. These flights are offered free of charge and are made possible through the generosity of EAA member volunteers.

Challenge Air builds self-esteem and confidence of children and youth with specials needs, through the experience of flight.

Since 1993, Challenge Air has enriched the lives of children and youth with special needs through its unique aviation programs. Challenge Air’s mission reflects the life-changing impact the flight experience has on children, families, donors, sponsors and communities as a whole.

The Challenge Air event for 2018 will held on September 22, 2018.  To learn more about this program, and how to volunteer go to Challenge Air’s website at www.challengeair.com  or contact Suzanne Yeonopolus at suzanne.yeonopolus@jeppesen.com  .
