The Power of Partnerships

We are proud of the strong Business Partnerships that we have developed over the 25-year history of the Foundation.  Our Business Partners have provided three quarters of a million dollars in project funds and better than $3 million worth of in-kind student support.
These Business Partners have assisted us to launch many dynamic projects, which have served thousands in industry, education and communities all over Wisconsin.

  • The opening of the world-class Horizon training center in Kenosha
  • Thousands of hours of professional training for Wisconsinís transportation teachers
  • Professional tools for over 1,700 future technicians
  • Career exploration events that have reached over 40,000 participants in the past 10 years
  • Operation of the stateís $3.5-million-dollar training vehicle pool for AYES schools and technical colleges
  • High-tech education for students attending the 16 AYES certified high schools
  • Industry certification at all of Wisconsinís Technical Colleges
  • A tax savings of $300,000 over the last four years for the AYES school districts

The collective result, a level of quality that is hard to match Ė anywhere! Our students know it, our customers appreciate it, and the nationís transportation industry looks to Wisconsin because of the good work our Business Partners have helped us to accomplish.
