In light of the ever-evolving COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with the recommendation of state and local agencies, we will now offer a brand new digital curriculum to schools.
This “Virtual NHRA YES Program” digital curriculum will include a video containing the same discussion topics that schools are accustomed to seeing when they attend the NHRA Youth & Education Services Program in person. Students now have the ability to view the entire YES Program presentation directly in the classroom or in the comfort of their own home.
The 2020 NHRA Youth & Education Services Program (YES) digital curriculum is a FREE program that focuses on the importance of goals and continued education; additionally, it allows students to learn about and explore various career opportunities. Students are presented with career, educational, and scholarship opportunities from our official NHRA YES Program Partners: FORD, Dodge/Mopar, Universal Technical Institute, and SEMA/PRI.
After the completion of the online curriculum, all students, teachers, parents, and chaperones will be eligible to receive a free race ticket for the AMALIE Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals event held in Gainesville, Florida at Gainesville Raceway on Friday September 25, 2020. This ticket will give students the opportunity to observe the same real world scenarios discussed in the videos applied live and in person. ***Please note that for schools that cannot attend the NHRA Gatornationals in Person, you still have the ability to participate and watch the NHRA Virtual YES Program online at any time at your convenience.
