CaSGC Aerospace Workforce Development Opportunities

The California Space Grant Consortium (CaSGC), in association with the California Space Grant Foundation (501(C)(3) educational non-profit corporation), provides financial and management support to CaSGC affiliate institutions for a number of aerospace workforce development projects relating to "Human Capital" issues within NASA and the Nation. These include educational, research, hands-on training, and outreach projects that positively impact the aerospace workforce issues. Key thrusts of the CaSGC workforce effort have focused on Student – Mentor projects and student and faculty interchanges and cooperative agreements with NASA Centers.

The CaSGC workforce program enables students of all ages to learn in an interactive environment bringing together information technologies and experienced mentors passing on their legacy to the next generation of public servants, educators, writers, scientists, engineers and business professionals. It also enables existing communities of concerned citizens, government agencies, universities, schools and companies to discover and nurture the very best of their young people by providing sponsorships, participating in Space Grant projects and joining us in our real world classrooms. The community-based Student - Mentor Alliance model is pictured below.
