Free CAP AE Memberships for AFA Chapter Use

 CAP offers free Aerospace Education memberships for AFA chapters to use:

  1. AFATOY- Each AFA Chapter Teacher of the Year is provided a complimentary membership to add to other TOY award components as a REWARD.  
  2. AFATEACH- Any educator or youth program leader working with the AFA or attending an AFA teacher workshop can be provided a complimentary SPONSORSHIP membership. (NOTE: AFA Chapters should only give the free AE membership to the few teachers the chapter can actually support in their STEM education programs.  This is NOT a blanket free membership program.)
