JetBlue For Good - Youth and Education: Preparing for Takeoff

Summary: 

JetBlue works to inspire humanity, not just in the air or in the terminal, but everywhere we touch down. We want to leave a legacy of good in every city where we operate and beyond. To make this truly inclusive, we asked our customers and crewmembers to help us shape our social impact strategy. From that process came our umbrella platform, JetBlue For Good, which focuses on three key areas that our stakeholders are passionate about: Youth and Education, Community and the Environment.

JetBlue For Good focuses on education, sparking imagination through reading, building strong communities, restoring after natural disasters and working to conserve the environment. For 15 years, JetBlue For Good has impacted the lives of thousands of people across JetBlue’s network in the U.S., Caribbean and Latin America.
