I’ve written about the ATF before*.  It’s a great program for students who like cars, or hope to land a job in the trade. Specifically, “automotive Trades Foundation (ATF), also known as The Montgomery County Students Automotive Trades Foundation, Inc., is a non-profit foundation established cooperatively by Montgomery County Public Schools and the business community in Montgomery County to promote and advance the interests of automotive education through the establishment of a student-run licensed used car dealership. This unique method of training high school students for skilled positions in the automotive field offers hands-on instruction to students interested in an automotive career. Students are introduced to potential employers with available automotive positions in technical service, customer service, sales and management.” For more details, visit:  http://www.autocareers.org/
