Subaru of America donates second vehicle to VHS automotive program

This month, Subaru of America has once again demonstrated its continued support of education by donating a second vehicle to the automotive program at Vineland High School.

In December 2019, VHS became a Subaru University Certified Automotive Program. Subaru of America supports secondary education CTE Automotive programs with the necessary resources to train and prepare young men and women to enter the automotive industry as entry-level technicians. Subaru allows students to have access to their factory technician training program so that they may have level one and level two technician training completed upon their high school graduation. This affords these young men and women the ability to begin a career in a Subaru dealership anywhere in the United States once they have graduated high school.

Subaru's commitment to education does not end with online training. The donations of late-model vehicles, diagnostic equipment as well vehicle components allows automotive programs to provide state of the art training for the young technicians.

On March 4, VHS received a Subaru Forester from the Philadelphia Subaru training center. The vehicle arrived via transport and was received with gratitude and thanks, according to Louis Bramante, instructor of the Automotive Technology Program at VHS. 

Subaru Employee Mr. Charles Klassman, (Field Training Service Manager, Atlanta, GA) is responsible for Certifying Automotive programs at Subaru University locations nationwide as well as coordinating donations to said programs.

“The administration of Vineland Senior High School along with the Program's Instructor would like to extend its thanks to Subaru of America for their generosity and continued support of education,” Bramante said. “It is our hope that we may provide a high-quality education to our students so that they may be prepared to begin employment upon graduation within the Subaru family of dealerships providing them a lifelong career with good pay.”
