What is Silver Wings?
Silver Wings is a student professional organization dedicated to developing civilian leadership skills and providing service to their community. Each chapter consists of college undergraduate and graduate students who volunteer together to help various non profit organizations within their community, increase professional skills through interaction with organizations, and have opportunities to travel across the nation gaining valuable leadership skills and experience in a professional business setting. Although we are supporters of national defense, our service products have a wide range of reach including student mentoring, health and wellness, and even assisting others with disabilities.
Unlike some organizations, Silver Wings is a self-governed organization that is run by students, from the chapter level all the way up to the national level. With minor supervision, Silver Wings works jointly with the Arnold Air Society (AAS) and the Air Force Association (AFA) to promote leadership skills, military awareness and professional development.
While Arnold Air Society and Silver Wings are separate organizations, our strong partnership is based on highly complementary missions. The focus of the Arnold Air Society mission is to build strong officers for the United States Air Force. Silver Wings also focuses on leadership development, and both organizations work together to further each other’s goals. Silver Wings is committed to developing strong civilian leaders with an understanding of aerospace power and has a continuing partnership between Arnold Air Society. Members of Silver Wings have in no way a commitment to serve as a members in the U.S. military.
