AREAS OF FOCUS
Education - STEM
We understand the importance of educating our youth in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Our future success, and the success of our customers, depend on a pipeline of highly capable technical talent.
We believe that advancing STEM education requires collaboration among industry, educators and families. AMA provides generous funding and volunteers to STEM education outreach activities for students ranging in age from elementary school through high school.
Spotlight - AMA is involved with the Virginia Science Technology Engineering and Applied Mathematics (STEAM) Academy.
The STEAM Academy is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, providing a uniquely challenging experience for students with exceptional ability and interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Any rising 9th or 10th grade student in the Commonwealth of Virginia may apply to attend the Virginia STEAM Academy boarding high school.
AMA supports and participates in numerous public outreach initiatives including the Virginia Air & Space Center’s mission. We have contributed engineering and creative content for exhibits, sponsored events, given talks to support STEM education, and had staff members serve on the Board of Directors.
Our Local Communities
Historically, AMA has supported numerous organizations that serve our local communities including the YMCA. The YMCA Bright Beginnings initiative is a community outreach program that provides children in need with new clothes and school supplies to start the school year. AMA sponsors the program and many of our staff members volunteer as Shopping Buddies.

An Achievable Dream is a nationally recognized K–12 program dedicated to the belief that all children can learn and succeed regardless of their socioeconomic background.
