THE SOLUTION IS CLEAR - WE NEED TO CREATE A SKILLED WORKFORCE FOR THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY

We need drivers to keep our country moving! The growing driver and logistics shortage is reaching crisis levels. An aging fleet of drivers is one of the main reasons for the driver shortage. The average age of a commercial truck driver in the U.S. is 46 years old.

The average age of a new entrant in trucking is 35. The Next Generation in Trucking Association is a nonprofit education accelerator promoting CDL Driver and Diesel Technician programs in High Schools and Community / Technical Colleges around the United States.

Meet Javier

MEET JAVIER!

Javier was a high school student at Patterson High School and got caught up in the wrong crowd. He had parents who loved him and a little brother that looked up to him—yet he was making poor choices.

He was not succeeding in the traditional school programs offered to him. That is when a CDL Driver program was offered to him to take his senior year in high school. He took it, thrived in the class and turned his life around.

Of his 9 friends in high school four ended up in prison and two are deceased due to gang violence. Javier has not only beaten the odds, but exemplifies the importance of high school vocational training programs! He is successfully living out a career as a Professional CDL Driver and his brother, Alejandro, has followed in his footsteps and now has his CDL too.

Even further, because of the pandemic, his parents were out of work for some time and Javier was able to support his family because being a truck driver is an essential job. 71.4% of all the freight tonnage is moved on the nation’s highways.
