Connecting to Online Educational Resources for Children
JetBlue remains committed to helping kids’ imaginations take flight. As most school districts across the U.S. are closed indefinitely, parents and teachers are looking for options to keep students engaged in learning. Education partners from both the JetBlue Foundation and our award winning Soar with Reading initiative have provided free tools and tips for schools, teachers, and students in the areas of STEM and Literacy. More resources can be found at jetbluefoundation.org and soarwithreading.com.
