CAREER DEVELOPMENT

a booth and hosts events geared around aircraft maintenance.
And, it puts on summer camps to highlight aircraft maintenance
careers. "These activities give students an idea of what the
industry is about, how they can get certified as a mechanic,
and what their career path might look like," Horning says.
Maguire reports many schools and companies are engaged
in similar outreach. For instance, the Aviation Institute of
Maintenance (AIM) and the City of Norfolk, Va., offer a robust
STEM education program throughout the city's nine-week
Parks and Recreation summer camp. The program's mission
is to provide the 1,400 students participating in summer youth
programs with age-appropriate education and career exploration in aerospace.
"The question for ATEC has been how can we support these
outreach programs?" she adds.
ATEC decided the best way was to gather stakeholders across
aviation to participate in its Choose Aerospace (chooseaerospace.org) campaign. The mission of Choose Aerospace is to
unite companies, associations, labor unions, and educational
institutions in efforts designed to spur interest in aerospace
careers and generate a diverse, qualified technical workforce.
Choose Aerospace began with research campaign that
considers three things:
* What is the target demographic that should receive the
message?
* What is the message that needs to be delivered?
* How can we best deliver that message?
ATEC will use the research to create a national awareness
campaign for companies. "We want everyone speaking the
same message," she says.
Public-private partnerships will move the needle forward,
adds Brian Sartain, senior vice president, repair and engineering
services for AAR. "The value of having everybody in a consortium working together is getting the word out to high school
students that there is high-value career in aircraft maintenance.
Aviation has not done as good a job as the automotive industry
in recruiting students right out of high school, and that's where
public-private partnerships will make a huge difference," he says.

Recruitment is a key partnership focus. Companies and their
educational partners seek ways to draw underrepresented racial
and ethnic groups and women to the field. AAR, for instance,
is stepping up efforts to recruit veterans transitioning out of
the military, as well as with individuals possessing parallel
skillsets, such as automotive and boat mechanics. It works
with the International Aviation Women's Association to draw
women to the field. And it partners with the Aerostars Avion
Institute, a public school primarily serving African American
and Latino students focused on aviation careers.
AAR's sheet metal course at Olive-Harvey College also presents opportunities to students in underserved communities
