The Organization of Black Aviation Professionals (OBAP) is hosting the Dreams2Careers program all day on Saturday, February 20, for young people of all ages. The event includes a celebration of Black aviation and aerospace history, as those legends still living among us share their stories directly with participants. Those attending will also have a chance to take virtual tours at Delta Air Lines and NASA, and learn about accident investigation with the NTSB.
Hands-on, age-appropriate activities will also be offered as part of the program, in three breakout sessions, for grades K-6, grades 6-8, and high school and collegiate ages. The sessions run from 10 am to 3 pm, and interested potential aviators and enthusiasts—and their parents or guardians—can register here. A commemorative t-shirt is available for purchase, and comes free to the first 150 attendees to register. A virtual library can be accessed at any time with a range of videos and resources to explore.
