WHO WE ARE
We are the Pilot Club of Tallahassee.
The Pilot Club of Tallahassee is over 88 years old!
“Friendship and Service since 1935″
The Pilot Club of Tallahassee, founded in 1935, is a part of Pilot International, a worldwide service organization. Founded in 1921, Pilot International is a volunteer service organization offering its members vast opportunities to make a positive difference in their communities and globally as they build lasting friendships within their clubs. Pilot Club volunteers conduct programs, projects and fundraisers that include many areas of charitable service at the local level. In addition, Pilot derives its name from the riverboat pilots who were able to steer a “true course” navigating through the rough waters of life.
The mission of Pilot International is to influence positive change in communities throughout the world.
Pilot Club members volunteer in many areas of charitable service and support the overall focus of Pilot International.
