Greetings and Welcome to the website for Georgia District Pilot!
Georgia is one of 20 Districts that make up the organization called Pilot International. This organization was begun in 1921 in Macon, Georgia. By going to http://www.pilotinternational.org, you can learn more about how our 57 clubs, as well as clubs around the world, serve their communities and make life better for people of all ages. We work toward the Pilot vision of a world where all are valued.
We seek to accomplish this with our focus on three core areas called Pilot Fundamental ABC’s- Anchor Clubs, Brain Safety & Fitness, and Caring for Families in Times of Need.
Sponsorship of Anchor Clubs in local schools gives our youth opportunities to learn to be leaders in their school and communities, and to experience hands-on service to others. We are also organizing Compass Clubs for college age and young adults to keep work going to make the world we live in a better place.
BrainMindersTM is Pilot International’s award winning program used by Pilot Clubs across the world and in Georgia to educate elementary age students about the importance of brain safety. Using puppets and costumes, Pilots are teaching young children how to “Play Safe, Play Smart.”
Our Pilot Clubs provide support for Caregivers in times of need, as well as, educating people of all ages about the effects and prevention of traumatic brain injury. Many clubs provide their communities with Project Lifesaver tracking devices for dementia patients and children who wander because of brain disorders such as autism.
The theme this year for the Georgia District is “Soaring into Service.” Our symbol this year is the hummingbird. Although tiny, the hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich and every personal connection has meaning.
Look for a club nearest to you and join us in Pilot Friendship and Service.
