Aerospace/STEM Education Partners for the Future

Civil Air Patrol patch


The Air Force Association has long supported the Civil Air Patrol, the official Auxiliary of the United States Air Force.  The missions of both organizations include the need to educate the general public about the importance of aerospace power, both now and in the future.  Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education initiatives are paramount in fulfilling this mission, and both the AFA and CAP provide a multitude of K-12 STEM opportunities for young people.  

CAP and AFA agree: producing patriotic and technologically-prepared future citizens is of prime importance in maintaining global competitiveness and national security.  

The two organizations have joined hands to collaborate, join each other’s organization, leverage resources, and work toward the same goal of preparing to defend our nation with the strength of air, space and cyber power.  Specifically, each organization brings unique alliance contributions.
