The program responds to low college going rates in Fresno, Kings, Madera and Tulare counties by partnering with regional K-16 educators on shared educational initiatives, instructional alignment, student preparation, and technology.

The City of Fresno proclaimed February 16 as Central Valley Honor Flight Day.

In 2016, our partners at Central Valley Honor Flight hosted 264 veterans traveling to Washington, DC, to visit memorials for the wars in which they served. The Next Honor flight will take place April 24, 2017. Anyone interested in donating to Central Valley Honor Flight or sponsoring a
veteran can learn more here.
