Future Techs Program
The WNY Ford Dealers, along with the Rochester Area and Erie Ford Dealers, want to thank all those that applied for this year’s Future Tech Program. Applications are now closed, but selected schools will be notified in May 2016. Also, be sure to keep an eye out next year for another chance to apply.
This program allows educational institutes, with an automotive training program, the opportunity to apply for a chance to receive a Ford vehicle along with related technical and computer support materials to help better train their students. These donated Ford vehicles will be relatively new, allowing the students to train on the most up-to-date technology and software so they are better prepared to succeed in their future careers.
