Partners in Education

The strength of any community in the future depends on how well we educate our young people today. That’s why our flagship Partners in Education program is so near and dear to the hearts of everyone at Volkswagen Group of America. We’re not just preparing students for America’s future workforce. We’re helping them realize their full potential.

Launched in September 2008, Partners in Education is designed to support students and teachers interested in advanced automotive technology and next-generation automotive engineering. Our programs help students from kindergarten through high school, and even at the college and post-graduate level.
