The goal of the Automotive Program is to spark youth’s interest in pursuing a career in the automotive industry. Scholars are provided a foundation of practical skills, problem solving skills, knowledge of motor technology, and social skills that will help youth navigate through difficult situations. Our professional facilitators will guide scholars through the history of the automobile and its development. Scholars will learn about auto manufacturers such as Tesla, Chevrolet, Ford, and Audi, examining each company’s strategic position within the automotive industry. In addition, scholars spend time in an automotive shop, receiving an extensive period of hands-on training that enables them to apply their automotive theory lessons and acquire practical experience. Scholars learn how to install a battery, tires, brakes, lights, windshield wipers, and even carry out an oil change during this program.
