Industry Working with Educators
SEMA’s High School Vehicle Build (HSVB) Program resumed in September 2021 after a pause in 2020/2021 due to COVID-related school shutdowns. Ramsey Consulting Group, Inc. is now contracted to manage the ten builds in progress at ten different high school automotive programs throughout the US. Five Jeep Wrangler TJs and five third-gen Toyota 4Runners are being customized through the participation of SEMA-member company sponsors. For more information about the SEMA HSVB program – visit the overview web page or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details on how to participate.
Check out the details on our visit to the Mon Valley Career and Technical Center in Charleroi, PA – one of the automotive programs building a 2002 Jeep Wrangler TJ in the SEMA HSVB program. Thanks to Mike VanHorn at 12Volt News for the coverage.
