Pilot International is looking for some young people interested in starting a local Anchor Club.
Macon-based Pilot International is holding an open house from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday to provide information on chartering a local Anchor Club. The event is at Pilot’s headquarters, 102 Preston Court, in Macon, just past the Academy for Classical Education.
Anchor Clubs represent the youth division of Pilot International. Based in local communities and schools, Anchor Clubs represent about 7,500 members across the U.S., the Bahamas, Japan and South Africa. Through their volunteer service programs and leadership-building opportunities, Anchor Clubs aim to instill six valuable qualities in their youths: altruism, noble purpose, citizenship, honor, open-mindedness and responsibility.
The open house is a drop-in event, and refreshments will be offered, according to a release. Attendees will have the opportunity to talk directly with Pilot staff members and take home a packet of information on chartering an Anchor Club.
Pilot International is a community-based volunteer service organization founded in 1921 in Macon on the principles of friendship and service. The name Pilot was inspired by the riverboat pilots of that day who represented leadership and guidance.
Pilots provides financial and hands-on support for national and local initiatives in keeping with its causes of youth development and leadership, brain safety and fitness, and caring for families in times of need.
