Tools for Success Program

EVIT Education Foundation has been offering scholarships to help EVIT students cover program fees for over a decade. Those scholarships have helped many students attend and complete a wide variety of EVIT programs. However, some students were still struggling to get started because their field of work requires a set of tools that cost thousands of dollars. EVIT Foundation saw this obstacle as another opportunity to help deserving students who completed their program in good standing. 

 

Working with local industry leaders, EVIT Foundation created the "Tools for Success" program, which provides students the tools they will need to be successful in their given trade. We started three years ago with EVIT Automotive students. Participating students received toolkits worth over $3800 upon completing the EVIT Automotive program. This allowed students to start their careers minimal debt from purchasing tools. 

 

This year, the EVIT Foundation is looking forward to expanding this program beyond Automotive to include Culinary, Cosmetology, Welding and Construction.

Through this program, qualifying individuals can receive a starter set of MATCO quality tools and a tool chest, worth $3,840 for an incredible value of only $500 (your part).

 

You can even choose to have this amount deducted gradually from your paycheck over the first 6 to 12 months of your employment, making it even more affordable. The rest of the cost will be shared by EVIT Education Foundation and the hiring dealership/shop.
