VISION OF FLIGHT

2021 Capital Campaign

THEIR FUTURES.
YOUR LEGACY.

Funds from Boys & Girls Club's capital campaign will be used to construct a new building that will be a shared space between Boys & Girls Club and the Duncan Aviation Focus Program. Capital campaign funds will also be used to support growth and expansion of Boys & Girls Club programs over the next three years.

By taking part in this capital campaign, you're building much more than the foundation of a new building. You're building the foundation that kids will stand upon to reach new, great heights. You're building up an industry with new thinkers and innovators. You're building a legacy that will inspire hard work, passion and a love of aviation for generations to come.

INTRODUCING STUDENTS TO THE WORLD OF AERONAUTICS

For almost 15 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Lincoln has been committed to giving youth new opportunities to succeed. Through the Duncan Aviation Focus Program and a new facility, we will be able to empower kids in a bigger way than ever before.

In collaboration with Duncan Aviation, the largest privately owned business jet service provider in the world, Boys & Girls Club will be introducing students to the world of aeronautics. We will offer classroom lessons, hands-on courses, work-based learning, after school programming, and access to higher education opportunities. By offering these teens a safe place to go where they benefit from cutting-edge curriculum, we are closing gaps and opening up a world of opportunity.

BUILDING SOMETHING GREAT

There is a workforce crisis happening in Nebraska and the U.S. Qualified, talented and passionate people are needed in the workforce. Baby Boomers, who have dominated the labor market since the 1960s, are retiring at a rate of up to 10,000 per day. By partnering with the public schools district, BGC has the opportunity to meaningfully address the workforce crisis and be an active part of the solution. 

Boys & Girls Club programs offer pathways to overcome barriers and enable all students to embark upon rewarding careers. We provide a comprehensive approach with support systems to put all students on an equal playing field, ultimately creating a more developed and diversified workforce.

"Duncan Aviation has been a proud supporter of Boys and Girls Club of Lincoln since they opened their doors in 2007. . . We are excited to move into our next phase together in the Duncan Aviation Focus Program and STEM Afterschool Program."
- Connie Duncan, Duncan Aviation
