Southwest Airlines Launches Our Spring Share the Spirit Initiative

On April 7, the Student Conservation Association (SCA), a national leader in youth service and stewardship, named Southwest Airlines its “Official Airline.” Additionally, we’re getting our hands dirty and joining student volunteers at SCA Earth Day service projects across our system for our Spring Share the Spirit initiative.<--break->

The charitable partnership between Southwest Airlines and the SCA will advance the Association’s mission of “building the next generation of conservation leaders” by expanding green service and job readiness opportunities for high school and college-age individuals nationwide.  Southwest is committed to Youth Leadership & Community Involvement as well as our Environment, and we believe that this charitable partnership with SCA further exemplifies our dedication to these causes.

In addition to SCA projects, the Share the Spirit Team worked with the National Wildlife and Refuge Association (NWRA) to identify project opportunities. Employee volunteers are encouraged to work with SCA, NWRA, or the local Parks and Recreation Department and volunteer for our environment!

I am interested to learn about this partnership and how my organization, Notre Dame Mission Volunteers - AmeriCorps, could pursue something similar. We have a conference each February where we fly over 300 people to BWI and use Southwest for as many flights as possible. In addition, we have two meetings for our city directors in Baltimore each year and have a staff member visit each of our program cities. Please advise how best to continue this conversation. Peace, Tom Murphy www.ndmva.org
