Project Details

What We Need
  • A written document that summarizes the Organization’s needs and goals for remote staff and virtual collaboration
  • Best practices and tips for the Organization’s remote staff members, including recommendations on the best virtual collaboration tools, such as Slack, Trello, Google apps, Zoom, etc.
  • Recommendations for managing projects with remote staff, including how to set up a digital workspace for easy collaboration, and how to establish communication styles and structures that support effective virtual teamwork
  • Advice on budget considerations for tools, travel, and in-person meetings for remote staff members
Additional Details

How to structure the Remote Strategy structure to allow for maximum collaboration.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Zoom meeting experience, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a governance committee, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,776 , allowing us to function more effectively as a non-profit organization targeting the underserved community.

It will help optimize the communication characteristics of our meetings since they are primarily digital in the current environment.

Our Mission

AeroStar's mission is to enhance, promote and support the academic awareness of aviation and aeronautical career path opportunities for students, particularly female, minority, underprivileged and at-risk youth. By providing aviation academic curriculum development, programs, activities and support services for youth Grades K-12, interested in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math, AeroStar has paved the way for the future of our industry. Due to the need to build capacity for a sustainable aviation talent pipeline through strategic partnerships, sponsors, donors and grants, The AeroStar Avion Institute Non Profit was formed.

What We Do

The AeroStar Avion Institute delivers programs that teach skills necessary to not just participate, but LEAD in the next generation of STEM innovation. Students are immersed in inquiry-based learning, engineering design projects, they operate flight simulators, remote controlled helicopters, drones, RC airplanes and VR headsets. They also build model airplanes and rockets to specifications. They study and demonstrate extensive knowledge on flight theory, aviation weather, aircraft radio operation, aircraft cockpit instrumentation and STEM careers. We soar above other programs because we provide years of ongoing support to students interested in pursuing pathways in Aviation/STEM.
