Sluggo!

Phoenix Garage’s second project vehicle. “Sluggo” is a low-mileage, 1961 Ford Fire Truck and with the students, and the help of many volunteers, we’ll turn it into this cool car hauler (In a later project we will turn it into a Diesel Hybrid).

The video below chronicles Sluggo’s journey “home”.

 

 

Sluggo is famous!

The Phoenix Garage is…

Who We Are: Our Program is designed by Education and Engineering Professionals who are car enthusiasts to assist at-risk students thrive in school and in life.

Who We Serve: Phoenix Garage serves at-risk, high school students from the Poudre School District, in Fort Collins Colorado.

At Risk Defined:  For a student to be defined as “At-Risk” he or she must experience one or more of the following issues: academic failure, attendance concerns, behavioral problems and social/emotional difficulties.

What our program is: Phoenix Garage is an educational mentoring program that provides at-risk students the opportunity to develop academic and work skills, through building high-tech, green vehicles.

Where we are Located: Phoenix Garage is located in Fort Collins Colorado.

When We Meet: Phoenix Garage meets every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 4:00 to 8:00 pm throughout the course of the project.

Why We Deliver This Program: If a student believes that he or she cannot succeed in school, they have little incentive to try to improve their academic performance.

In order for students to re-engage school, they must be given opportunities to challenge their negative beliefs by achieving meaningful academic goals.

Phoenix Garage will provide this opportunity.
