BRONX—NEW YORK–The United Auto Merchants Association, UAMA needs the public’s help to raise funds to build a new automotive and technical school to train the auto mechanics in the NYC area and beyond. We are launching a crowdfunding campaign through GoFundMe. Your donation will help secure the materials needed for our students to gain an education in their respective fields.
The United Auto Merchants Association is a 501 C 3 nonprofit that was founded by Pedro J. Estevez in 2007 with the intention to specialize in strengthening the automotive industry. UAMA has made a difference for years, since the Elite Auto Tech Training Center graduated its first class in 2012. UAMA is in the process of building the new Elite Auto Tech Training Center that will be the first of its kind. This institution will be a state-of-the-art auto training school, specializing in the automotive fields, complete with tools, instructors, and all materials needed to help students gain the knowledge they deserve. UAMA prioritizes helping Latino, minority, and women-owned small businesses. At the Elite Auto Tech Training Center, students will gain knowledge through 62 specialized seminars ranging in topics from Fundamentals of Electronics to Hybrid Vehicles. Once auto technicians are fully trained, they can go on to help create jobs, stimulate the local economy, and preserve the local environment and communities at large.
This new training center will positively impact the community of the Bronx and beyond. This ambitious feat will not come without hard work, and we are prepared to put in the time, energy, and effort as we always have, supporting minority and woman-owned small businesses in the community. Due to the demand and need from the community, we feel that establishing our own Elite Auto Tech Training Center for auto mechanics and students is the best solution possible: but we cannot do it alone.
