DRIVE One is a 501(c)(3) that provides at-risk youth with vocational training in automotive technology, machining, welding, and transportation design.
Our Mission Statement is "Professional, STEAM-driven education through collaboration with Industry".
To help connect students with industry and employment opportunities, we have them build project cars, then enter each into competitions to showcase before employers and industry personnel.
Such events we've competed in include the Detroit Autorama, Cleveland Autorama, GoodGuys PPG Nationals, and the Grand National Roadster Show, where we became the first high school to compete for America's Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR) Award.
Our latest project is a '68 Ford Mustang,named "Ghost Green" for its rare ghost strips. Students have spent the last six months restoring it at our 16,000 sq. ft. TechCenter in Roseville, Michigan.
It is our goal to enter Ghost Green into both Autoramas and the PPG Nationals, with students In-Tow.
However, as a non-profit, we rely on donations, grants, and sponsorships to help cover the cost to complete projects, as well as transporting them and students to competitions.
All support from Champion's Garage will help us complete this car, and provide students with the opportunity to connect with employers, and develop skills for the workforce.
