HOW PROJECT WRECKLESS IS
PROVIDING TOOLS FOR LIFE
EACH TEN MONTH PROGRAM BRINGS TOGETHER SIXTEEN AT-RISK YOUTH AND ONE CAR!
As they cycle through seven job functions, each with a unique set of responsibilities, the students collaborate to get the project to the finish line. From the practical skills of rebuilding a car to the fiscal responsibility of keeping the project on budget and on time, the seven job functions are not only essential to the completion of the project, but also challenge each participant to expand their own capacities.
The program instills self confidence, and strength of mind and character through the meaningful guidance and support from instructors and mentors. Participants are held accountable for their commitment to the program, to their teammates, and most importantly, to themselves. Project Wreckless is a quantitative, results-driven program at its core. The transformation of the car from a rusted pile of parts to a one-of-a-kind show car is a tangible metaphor for the impact Project Wreckless will have on its participants.
