DRIVING THE NEXT GENERATION OF TRUCKING INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS – HELP US CREATE A SKILLED, DIVERSE AND EQUITABLE TRUCKING WORKFORCE

NextGen Trucking Students

Founded in 2021, the Next Generation in Trucking Association is a non-profit trade association with the mission to promote trucking as a positive career field; to create and partner with career technical education (CTE) programs at secondary and postsecondary institutions; and encourage the training of young people in the trucking industry by connecting them to training and employment opportunities.
The organization’s volunteer leadership consists of industry professionals who are passionate about trucking, career technical education, and providing our emerging workforce with a pathway to well-paying and rewarding careers. Membership consists of industry stakeholders who share our mission: students, teachers, schools, truck drivers, diesel technicians, business professionals, partners, and sponsors.
