A little information about the benefitting organization, DRAGG, Drag Racing Against Gangs and Graffiti, is a program within Santa Barbara Police Activities League (SBPAL), a non-profit agency that provides an after school automotive program for high school students in the Santa Barbara area. The program has formed partnerships with the Santa Barbara School Districts and the Santa Barbara Police Department. The goal of DRAGG is to provide a positive environment for youth to improve their self-worth by learning marketable skills in the automotive industry while preparing them for a productive life with mentorship from volunteer law enforcement officers and citizen volunteers ultimately resulting in continued education and job placement. A perceived lack of opportunity and positive influences can contribute to a child’s likelihood to drop out of school and join gangs. DRAGG empowers youth to expand their view of the world by using the exciting automotive industry to showcase job opportunities with limitless earning potential. The program reinforces that through hard work, self-respect, and discipline a successful life of possible. Through Classroom Education, the DRAGG shop, is a fully functioning automotive repair garage in which youth are taught auto mechanics by an accredited teacher. Mentorship, in addition to the teacher, the students will be introduced to local law enforcement officers and citizen volunteers who will act as classroom assistants. Students will also participate in Field Trips, that DRAGG will provide students with fun, safe learning opportunities that serve to stimulate the thought process and allow youth to dream outside their neighborhood. Trips such as excursions to sanctioned drag and drift races, allowing students to see the teamwork and the number of people required to race one vehicle. As well as visiting local businesses involved in the auto industry to showcase the number of job opportunities available to the auto market, museum visits, and a trip to the jail to reinforce the importance of making good life decisions.
