Wheels For Workers Was Recently Awarded The Mission Throttle Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award
Wheels for Workers is a Michigan non-profit organization that incubates volunteer mechanics and Detroit youth from ages 18 – 28, teaching them valuable mechanic and auto body repair skills. The program seeks to empower our workers with the tools they need to succeed, and to become marketable craftsmen in the ever-changing auto industry.
Wheels for Workers functions by accepting tax-deductible vehicle donations, which are then used for training throughout their repair process. Once repaired, these cars are sold at market value to the community and below market value to disadvantaged workers graduating from workforce development programs. These programs include, but are not limited to, Wheels For Workers, Focus Hope, and PayItForward so workers have Reliable Wheels… For a Good Job….. That Will Change Their Life!
