Putting a priority on inspiring the high fliers of tomorrow

12 April 2012 News in brief

The Airbus Corporate Foundation is expanding two programmes aimed at helping young people from disadvantaged backgrounds realise their full potential. The organization’s “Flying Challenge” – which is being piloted at Bellefontaine College in the Toulouse, France area with The United Way charity – inspires students aged 13-15 through strong mentoring relationships; while the Foundation’s pilot initiative with the Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center – launched in 2011 in Alabama, USA – welcomes employee volunteers from the Airbus engineering site in Mobile to share their expertise with students.
