The Gilmore Garage Works Program is seeking applicants to develop a pool of volunteers that can serve as fill in and full program mentors, mentor assistants, substitutes, and specialized skill experts. The program runs through the school year, with sessions Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
The Garage Works Mission is to provide area high school students with Antique Auto Restoration Skills, Basic Shop Skills, Fundamentals of Automotive Maintenance, Team Work and Employability Skills. Students are the most important element of the program. In all decision making, and leadership choices; “It’s all about the students.”
Garage Works Mentors:
Mentors are first and foremost, teachers and provide good examples for students. Garage Works Mentors provide supervision, mentoring and automotive skill training as a leader, project manager, and project assistant. A big part of mentoring is the development of excellent friendship based, working relationships with the students. Ultimately having a trusting, supportive and nurturing mentor staff, always serves the mission of making the experience “all about the students.”
Lead Mentors: Mentors who provide team leadership focused on one area within the over-all Garage Works:
Mentor Assistants: Serve under the Lead Mentors as an assistant in each area. Each project may have several mentors working as assistant project leaders. When the Lead Mentors cannot be in attendance, one of the Mentor Assistants will fill in.
Background checks are required for program volunteers.
