OUR MISSION AT URBAN FLYERS
The ethos at Urban Flyers is to aim for the stars!
Our mission is to give as many young people as possible a level playing field in the world of tech; one that is equal to what their more fortunate counterparts have access to. We therefore support children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds (whether it be due to ethnicity, race, religion, gender, economical background) to access innovative technology and educational STEM activities alongside being able to explore jobs, training and career options. We want to create pathways into technology, STEM and aviation for more young black people and females -- two groups seriously underrepresented within the Sciences.
Although our work focuses mainly on the younger generation, our aim is to alleviate digital exclusion and digital poverty amongst both children and adults by bridging intergenerational gaps through community projects.
