Automotive Youth Education Systems Program


AYES is a partnership between local high schools and automotive dealerships that is sponsored and supported by virtually all automobile manufacturers. AYES is designed to attract our young people to the automotive industry and give them an opportunity to gain real life experience in a dealership environment.  


The nucleus of AYES is the students in the automotive program at El Paso Independent School Districts Center for Career and Technology Education (CCT).  These students are from various high schools in the El Paso, Gadsden, and Tornillo School Districts.


The program consists of a NATEF and AYES-certified curriculum and offers job shadowing and internships as part of the program.  Upon graduation, many students continue with their college education while others often begin full-time employment at their sponsoring dealerships.
