Once upon a time, machine and shop classes were places where boys and girls could learn valuable technical and personal skills, like how to rebuild a transmission or how to apply yourself through hard work and elbow grease. These days, those classes are all but gone. As of 2016, only 40 high schools in the entire state of Oregon had even the most rudimentary of automotive programs.
We still believe in that dream, which is why World of Speed is committed to our educational partnership with local school districts and Clackamas Community College. Our Learning Center is a place where young people who are smart, curious, and passionate can find a new interest and be inspired to follow a new path. More than a hundred local children take classes with us daily.
We need your help to continue seeing this dream through.
There’s a day dedicated to giving thanks. There are two for getting deals. #GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. Each year, on the Tuesday immediately following Thanksgiving, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company, or your organization to come together to give something more. Then spread the word. Tell everyone you know about the joy of giving. Join us and be a part of a new global tradition of generosity.
