RPM Foundation Ambassador
RPM Foundation is an entity of America’s Automotive Trust and has offices in Chicago and Detroit and volunteer ambassadors in 11 States. We are looking for an RPM Ambassador in the Seattle/Tacoma-area. On average, RPM Ambassadors work about 20-hours/month, although there could be more hours worked during "car guy season". As an RPM Foundation (RPM) Ambassador, you have a direct effect on the education and employment of the next generation of craftsmen and artisans entering the restoration/ preservation fields in both the automotive and marine industries. Your passion and industry knowledge will help make connections that can directly impact the pathway to careers for these young people, as well as help build the curriculum necessary for their education. RPM Volunteer Ambassadors - along with RPM’s staff of 2 ½ - give momentum to the movement of securing our automotive heritage and ensuring that the skills and knowledge needed to restore & preserve cars and boats are passed on to the next generation of craftsmen and artisans. We are impacting the formal educational pipeline through to shop-readiness, and we cannot do it without you!
