Route 66 Car Club is a vocational education club with a mission to inspire, train and build life long job skills.
The club was founded in 2006 by auto collision and refinishing teacher, Mr. Weber. Mr. Weber is a talented paint craftsman with 35 years of teaching expertise at Rubidoux High School and Riverside City College. His dedicated students and alumni have gone on to become professionals in the auto body repair industry, award-winning car builders, owners of repair shops, after market car industry manufacturers and small business owners who have been featured in numerous magazines, cable and reality television shows.
Route 66 Car Club is more than a student organization, it was created to bridge the gap between the local car community and the Auto Collision and Repair courses offered by the Riverside County Office of Education's Regional Occupation Program (R.O.P.). Students enrolled in the class learn basic understanding of the auto collision trade, intermediate and master skills in auto body repair and refinishing. The club offers students the opportunity to meet local industry leaders, network with the car community and establish relationships with future employers.
Students who successfully complete the program receive a certificate of training to be used upon entering the workforce after high school graduation. The elective vocational courses are open to all high school Junior and Senior students in Riverside, Moreno Valley and Jurupa Valley.
