The GNCC provides humanitarian support to low-income families and refugees resettling in Lincoln. Duncan Aviation provides a variety of support to help.
“We have donated proceeds from company fundraisers, held clothing drives, and volunteered there,” says Leon. “We’ve hosted facility tours and last year, we hosted an on-site career fair specifically for GNCC clients who are seeking employment.”
As a new member of the GNCC advisory board, Leon is learning about the center and the board’s fiduciary duties and helping gauge interest in job-seeker career classes (resume writing, job searches, submitting applications, and interviewing) and job-shadowing at Duncan Aviation.
“We volunteer with their citizenship classes, preparing students who are taking their citizenship tests,” says Leon. “Soon, Duncan Aviation team members will volunteer to teach the ELL (English Language Learner) classes for their refugee and immigrant population.”
The SMT, managers, our Facilities team, and various team members have also helped with clean-up tasks, repaired and painted the building, maintained vehicles, donated updated kitchen appliances, and helped update the center’s HVAC system.
