Who We Are - What We Do!

      PILOT INTERNATIONAL  is a community based volunteer service organization, founded in 1921 in Macon, GA, on the guiding principles of "Friendship and Service" through charitable projects, community service, education and research.

 

      Pilots are everywhere! We are people who want to give back to their communities. Pilots come from all walks of life. We're your neighbors, your co-workers, relatives, and even elected officials. We're a positive force around the world! With almost 400 Pilot Clubs, Pilots can be found across the US, and also in The Bahamas, Japan, and South Africa.

      Pilot International’s mission is to influence positive change in communities throughout the world.  To do this, we come together in friendship and service, focusing on encouraging brain safety and health and supporting those who care for others.

      Committed to "Do More, Care More, and Be More" for their communities every day, Pilots provide financial and hands-on support for numerous national and local initiatives in keeping with our Mission.

      Brain Safety & Fitness   Since 1992, Pilot International has worked in the area of brain-related service. In 2013, Pilot narrowed ints focus to Brain Safety & Fitness as the majority of our clubs were working in thie area. Pilots support several TBI camps. Pilots also participte in Pilot International's BrainMinders brain-safety educational program for elementary-aged children and in local safety fairs and bike rodeos. Pilots are proud partners of Safe Kids Worldwide and are champions of our own "Think H.A.P.P.Y. Be H.A.P.P.Y. Be BRAIN FIT!" public awareness campaign for brain fitness and mental longevity.

      Supporting Those Who Care for Others   In 2013, Pilot International introduced the "Pick Me Ups" initiative for Family Caregivers that seeks to promote awareness of the unique needs of these special individuals. Through both fundraising and hands-on service work, local Pilot and Anchor Clubs provide a "little Pick Me Up" to deserving Caregivers in their communities. Pilot International established the second week of November as International Care & Kindness Week. Pilots are proud supporters of Project Lifesaver and other organizations that seek to provide aid, respite and peace of mind to Family Caregivers of all kinds.
