The Aviator’s Club program initiated by the Ramon Foundation, takes a group of
kids with high potential and provides them with the opportunity to grow and
believe in themselves, achieving goals they never thought they could
The two year program engages fifth grade students in a variety of
activities with Israeli Air Force Pilots. The program introduces them to values
of self confidence, respect, and persistence, and inspires them to reach for
high goals such as becoming pilots in the IAF.
The project now serves 200
students in 9 schools, with tens more waiting to join. The program is working on
further expanding the project to serve Jewish communities in the United States
with the intention of connecting the Israeli students with kids from abroad.
