Ed. Foundation Receives Support from Driven Brands
“We’re excited to partner with the Collision Repair Education Foundation to bring high school and college students closer to a satisfying, lifelong career,” said Jose Costa, group president of Driven Brands’ Paint and Collision division. “By partnering with CREF, we’re able to connect with aspiring technicians, relay the benefits of work in the paint and collision industry and share the many success stories of our franchisees.”
The career fairs, which connect high school and college students with potential employment opportunities, are taking place in Chicago; Minneapolis; Boston; Atlanta; and Columbus, Ohio. Driven Brands will participate in the second annual Cars, Careers & Celebrities Expo on Sept. 16 at the Chicagoland Speedway, as well as the other events, giving access to hundreds of student resumes collected by the Ed. Foundation.
“I would like to thank Driven Brands for joining the Collision Repair Education Foundation in our efforts to not only support high school and college collision school programs but also connect their students with employment and career opportunities,” Brandon Eckenrode, Ed. Foundation director of development, said. “Through their support we will be able to continue and enhance our efforts in ensuring that graduate students are ready for entry-level employment within the industry. Through their participation in our events, Driven Brands can showcase their opportunities around the country. We thank them for their support!”
