hanks to the Soar with Reading program, this summer children in Fort Lauderdale have access to the coolest vending machines around. Instead of snacks, they are selecting new, free books like the Magic Tree House series. Random House Children’s Books authors and illustrators – Mary Pope Osborne (Magic Tree House series), Judd Winick (Hilo series), R. J. Palacio (Wonder), Chris Grabenstein (Mr. Lemoncello’s Library series), Christian Robinson (Little Penguins) – are supporting the program throughout the summer by encouraging voting in this year’s #BookBattle which is currently underway.
Earlier this summer, JetBlue welcomed over 40 high school students from across the U.S. to New York’s JFK Airport to learn what it takes to pursue a career in the aviationindustry. The event was part of the New York Student Aviation Expedition, an experiential learning trip organized by the Aviation Community Foundation to inspire students to launch their career paths.
JetBlue’s Technical Operations and Corporate Social Responsibility teams partnered to build 275 bikes that were donated to children in the foster care system, as part of the second annual JetBlue For Good Bike Build.
