The Trust delivers two key youth programmes; Blue Skies and Inspirational Outreach.
Blue Skies is an accredited programme which creates partnerships and develops teamwork and leadership opportunities with military and civilian organisations linked to aviation, engineering and science to support vulnerable young people aged 12-16 to achieve their full potential. Blue Skies is an intensive programme working with young people for four months a year over three years, and culminates with a work experience placement for each student.
Our Inspirational Outreach programme provides targeted interventions from aged 10, according to the needs identified by schools. Sessions are delivered by Inspirational Mentors supported by JET employees who recruit, train, coordinate and support these volunteers to deliver bespoke support packages to schools.
