Career and Technical Education programs, including automotive shop classes are disappearing from our schools.
This lack of opportunity for Oregon students is leading to a critical skilled worker shortage in the automotive field. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the nation’s demand for auto technicians is expected to grow by 17% from 2010 to 2020, adding 124,800 jobs for a total of 848,000 jobs.
As part of The World of Speed Motorsports Museum (WoS) mission, we are committed to addressing the need for automotive career and technical education for high school students. That’s why in September 2015 we created an innovative pilot with West Linn-Wilsonville School District (WLWV) and the Clackamas Community College (CCC) and began hosting 21 students in our Learning Center to take an “Automotive Fundamentals” class.
In partnership with WLWV and CCC, our Museum is providing a Learning Center with 10 automotive bays & lifts and two state-of-the-art classrooms along with all the equipment, tools, supplies and cars needed to support and bring this program alive.
Students receive, at no cost to them, 1.5 high school and 12 community college credits.
Your donation will help fund our Education Center and education program growth. It will fund continued outreach to school districts allowing us to serve more students in the future. Additionally, your donation will help fund the cost of administration, staffing, tools, equipment and computer technology for our programs.
Thank you for helping us inspire and enable the next generation of motorsport enthusiasts!
