(AAA) - In 1920, the AAA School Safety Patrol program began, allowing students to be active participants in maintaining a safe walk to and from school. Over 50,000 schools and over 500,000 students worldwide have actively participated as members of the AAA School Safety Patrol. AAA Southern New England would like to encourage all schools to initiate their own AAA School Safety Patrol program.

AAA / Ford Auto Skills
The top high school automotive technicians in each state compete annually in the AAA/Ford Auto Skills.

The students compete for over $100,000 locally in scholarships and prizes, and the winning teams represent their state at the national Auto Skills finals. The program calls attention to the need for qualified service technicians throughout the country.
