Boeing's journey as a global industry leader and corporate citizen parallels its nearly 100-year history of building better communities worldwide.

As we contribute toward sustainable growth and systemic impact for our communities and their people, we must invest in preparing individuals for success through lifelong learning - a process that starts at birth and continues throughout life. With a focus on integrated, active and ongoing learning we support the capacity of individuals and communities to succeed in a constantly evolving world. To this end, we invest in programs well-positioned to effect systems-level change. We do this by focusing on areas fundamental to healthy communities: education, environment, health and human services, arts and culture and civic engagement - to achieve improved outcomes that make our communities thrive.
