Students matched for summer internships

November 17, 2010

Student AYES technicians are being placed at area dealerships for their final job-shadowing experiences, just before summer internship activities.


Many AYES students job-shadowed during their school spring breaks and said they gained a new understanding of what is required to be successful in your dealership. There are 30 qualified entry-level students in the area who are eager to work in your service department. 

These students qualified by meeting the high standards set forth by the AYES program in their area high school automotive classes. A few are high school seniors; most are juniors.


In addition, another AYES program just began at Joliet Township High School’s Central Campus. The successful launch spotlighted the accomplishments of the school’s passing its NATEF certification as well as its obtaining donated new vehicles, tools and curriculum from the manufacturers.  

Area AYES schools include Curie Metro High School, Chicago (near midway Airport); Hammond (Ind.) Area Career Center; Lake County High Schools Technology Campus, Grayslake; Joliet Township High School (Central Campus);  Parkland College (High School Program), Champaign; Streamwood High School; and Technology Center of DuPage, Addison.
