Program Partners

New community partnerships formed through the Aerospace Diversity Outreach and Inclusion program have provided several opportunities to combine resources and enhance our program.

New Star Aviation previously had a formal partnership and funded contract with Saint Paul Public Schools. We previously offered an Introduction to Aerospace with Drones extended day course at Washington Technology Magnet School.

New Star Aviation previously had a formal partnership with NASA Glen Research Center. We were awarded travel funding and education materials as part of the NASA Out of School Learning Network for aerospace education activities in Summer 2017.

We are actively pursuing strategic partnerships with other non-profit organizations to enhance our ability to deliver our programs to students of color in Saint Paul and the surrounding communities with combined resources from multiple funding sources.
