Our general meeting is held on the second Saturday of each month at the College Park Aviation Museum in College Park, Maryland from 12:00 pm to 2:00 p.m. Due to COVID-19, we have shifted our meetings and they are held virtually on ZOOM. Our activities, events, and news can be located on our website. We invite you to participate with our organization by sharing your skills, expertise with our youth and make a positive impact either through donating your time and donating financially to the programs.
2020, has shown us that there are so many fields that are within aviation, space exploration, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. These are the areas that we are focused on with the youth of our community. Our goal is to assist and encourage young men and women to pursue education and career opportunities within those fields. Have been very successful in warding hundreds of scholarships to high school and college students. Many have gone on to careers within the various STEM fields. Our Youth in Aviation Program and College Scholarship programs have helped and continue assist outstanding high school students in their quest for their higher education goals and aspirations.
ECCTAI annually holds many fundraising events, that support the growth of the many programs that we fund. The events are Youth in Aviation and Scholars Breakfast, Tuskegee Airmen Commemoration Day Event; the General Benjamin O. Davis Golf Tournament and the Tuskegee Airmen Holiday Fundraiser.
