STAND UP for STEM

Aimed at promoting careers in MRO and improving readiness for the aviation workforce, Avocet’s “Stand up for STEM” program plans to address the growing need for qualified labor in the maintenance sector.

“Stand up for STEM” includes several trailblazing programs like:

  • A three-year apprenticeship program in partnership with the Florida Department of Labor
  • An 18 week internship initiative with Embry Riddle Aeronautical University
  • Active membership on the Seminole County Public Schools Aviation Program Advisory Committee

Long term goals for the program include expanding facilities at the Orlando-Sanford International Airport with an on-site STEM-focused school, workshop and training area; reaching out to young students through hosted field trips; and onsite or offsite career days.
