WOMEN'S ONLY AUTOMOTIVE SEMINAR
Do you feel lost when you talk to a mechanic?
Do you panic when something goes wrong with your car?
Have you felt taken advantage of by an auto repair shop?
DeBoer's Auto will give you the knowledge you need to be in control of your car!
We will cover the following topics:
- How to check your cars underhood fluids
- How to safely jump start a vehicle
- How to change a flat tire
- Brief overview of major vehicle systems
Practical and easy tips and lessons like, what is the purpose of coolant? How can I tell if I need brakes? What do the letters on the side of my tire mean? What can I touch under the hood of my car? What should I not touch?
At our upcoming Women's Seminar, we are asking for donations for this great oppurtunity! DeBoers Auto will match whatever is donated.
The scholarship is managed by the TechForce Foundation- http://www.techforcefoundation.org/ and the scholarship Bogi is starting through them is just for women to attend tech school. It's called the Bogi’s Garage Girls – automotive scholarship for women. It is not yet listed in their list of scholarships as it is brand new.They are establishing it as we speak with an initial 15k in donations. In the beginning it will be a smaller scholarship for just one person, though she have big plans to build it over the next year to be a larger scholarship that will hopefully be able to help more women each year.
Applicants will apply and be funded through the TechForce foundation, but winner will be selected by Bogi and her team, and she's working on developing an internship with her shop or other female friendly shops after graduation as part of the scholarship package. This is still all in development – but moving quickly!
