Preparing high school students for an exciting and rewarding future.



We are Automotive Youth Education Systems (AYES)—a non-profit network committed to providing quality, effective, career- focused automotive service education to high school students.

AYES brings a new approach. We do more than “educate” or “train”. We strive to inspire a new culture of automotive service professionals at an early age. A culture of innovators, problem-solvers and collaborators bonded together by a pride of service and agency. A culture that strives for excellence in the name of road safety.




                Recognized Leader in Workforce Development              

Proof positive. We’ve been federally recognized by both the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Labor for our profound contributions in the CTE space and to our nation’s workforce development.

How do we do it?

By offering an innovative, multidisciplinary program that:

  • bridges the gap between “real world” business needs and education through its integrated, holistic program.
  • champions context through hands-on experience, mentorship, practice and guidance.
  • is engineered from the ground up to best serve the students seeking employment and the employers seeking them.


AYES has active affiliations in almost every state and hundreds of NATEF-accredited programs nationwide. Find one near you.
