Community Involvement

Van Nuys Airport continues to lead the way in developing close relationships within the community, demonstrating the importance of collaborating with our neighbors. VNY staff regularly attends and participates in important events and activities to build strong relations with schools, local businesses and organizations that benefit everyone in the community. Our mission is to be your good neighbor!

There was no shortage of delicious offerings and fun activities at both the Taste of Encino and Sherman Oaks Street Fair. Both events took place in October and had something for the entire family! Exhibits ranged from business booths, including our Van Nuys Airport exhibit, wellness pavilions, arts and crafts vendors, kid’s activities, school booths, lots of food tastings, and live entertainment.

Reaching students at career fairs is one of the most important outreach activities at VNY. This is our opportunity to introduce students to the airport and aviation careers by bringing airport professionals into the school to discuss how students can better prepare themselves for these careers. We recently participated in the Granada Hills and Simi Valley Career Fairs. Our goal is to reach a wide cross-section of students in the San Fernando Valley to inform and educate them about the exciting career opportunities that exist in aviation and how they can get involved. We talk about the ACE Academy, Team LAWA, Young Achievers/Teacher Mini-Grant, highlight airport tenants, provide some brief history and background on Van Nuys Airport.

If you're interested in participating in future Team LAWA events or would like VNY at your next career fair, don't hesitate to contact the Van Nuys Airport Public and Community Relations office via email, VNYPR@LAWA.org or by calling (818) 442-6526.
