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!
