Concept

Many students drop out of high school because they have poor grades, low attendance, behavioral issues or they do not feel that completing high school will benefit them.

Students in Phoenix Garage will be highly, internally, motivated to build these cool “green” vehicles and will be willing to learn topics and skills required for the build.  Through that “willingness to learn” we will be able to assist them to develop their academic skills.

Students in Phoenix Garage will be required to

  • Assist in the building of green technology vehicles
  • Develop presentations and deliver them to various audiences
  • Research topics related to the information they need to know to effectively complete their tasks on the vehicle.

Students in our program will develop skills in these areas

  • Academic skills
  • Various Green Technology Skills
  • Problem Solving
  • Communication

They will learn

  • Professionalism
  • Team Work
  • Discipline
  • Responsibility

We will do this through

  • An apprentice type of program
  • Professional mentors to guide them,

The program will drive the message of “All students must graduate from high school and continue on for more education.
