A Different Point of View - Engage Inspire Transform

"Friend do it this way - that is, whatever you do in life, do the very best you can with both your heart and mind...When one sits in the Hoop of the People, one must be responsible because all of Creation is related. And the hurt of one is the hurt of all. And the honor of one is the honor of all. And whatever we do effects everything in the universe."


A Different Point of View

A Different Point of View (ADPOV) is a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization whose mission is to engage, inspire and transform youth who are in danger of loosing their way by teaching them to fly. Through aviation education and mentoring, we show students a world they've never seen before!


We are taking applications for our Aviation Career Program. Students receive professional flight training, ground school, leadership training, field trips to an air traffic control tower and other aviation industries. Students meet and interact with airline captains, air traffic controllers, FBO managers, airport administrators, flight attendants and airplane mechanics. Sign up today as seats are limited!
Contact: Lynn@ADifferentPointofView.org to register. Scholarships will be available for those who qualify.

Who We Work With

The primary charitable purpose of A Different Point of View is to provide underserved youth between the ages of 15 and 18 opportunities to expand their perspectives through life-enhancing activities such as flight lessons. Learning how to fly provides an exciting, real-life application of the math and science students learn in school. We feel the best STEM learning can happen through the hands-on experience of flight lessons and other aviation career activities.

ADPOV provides opportunities for youth throughout Santa Barbara County.
