Volunteer with CrossVenture|Aero and Inspire the Next Generation of Mission Aviators

Each year JAARS offers CrossVenture|Aero,  a quality camp that helps campers explore their passion for flying while building on their understanding of missions. We could not do this camp without people like you who are interested in watching young people grow and take hold of a cause bigger than themselves. With that in mind, the following are ways that you might consider volunteering with us for a week of your summer.
