According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, over 60,000 automotive service jobs in the U.S. are going unfulfilled as the automotive industry competes for skilled labor with other high-tech industries. With over 1.9 million BMWs currently on the road, the need for highly skilled technicians will continue to escalate. There is an anticipated 18% growth for the profession by 2010, which translates into 991,000 technicians.

Vehicle donations are part of the Automotive Youth Educational Systems (AYES), a partnership of automotive manufacturers, dealers, and qualified high schools offering career and technical training to encourage students interested in pursuing retail automotive service careers.
