The sky is the limit…thank you Independent Pilots Association Foundation!
What do you want to be when you grow-up? From musicians to teachers and social workers, our Project GOLD girls are regaining their footing and finding their personal strengths to pursue a variety of career pathways. By co-sponsoring the newly launched Bridges to the Future, the IPA Foundation is helping to fill an important gap between recovery services and mapping out a new life. The program includes educational support, vocational training, job skills development, paid internships and career planning.
The IPA Foundation, which is composed of professional pilots who fly in service of United Parcel Service, is committed to making a positive impact in the lives of child sex trafficking survivors. This year, their support meant that dozens of Project GOLD girls got personalized attention and support via dedicated tutors, specializing in a range of subjects. Last year, the foundation helped to fund summer programming which provided a wide range of enrichment activities from fitness sessions to painting workshops, all within a safe environment.
“The Independent Pilots Association Foundation is dedicated to the welfare of children and is proud to support Kristi House and Project GOLD. We applaud the efforts of all involved to combat sex trafficking and to give young survivors the help they need to set a course for a bright future,” said IPA Foundation Trustee Eric Wetsch.
