NADA, AYES promote auto careers for minorities

November 24, 2010
To raise awareness of automotive career opportunities for minorities, leaders of the NADA and Automotive Youth Educational Systems this month addressed a convention of the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers. NADA Vice Chairman Alan Starling noted that 26 percent of AYES students are minorities. AYES is a partnership among dealers, manufacturers and schools to recruit and train young people for careers as automobile technicians. Donald Gray, AYES president and chief executive, added, "Our program can be a valuable asset for minority dealers."
