The growing driver and logistics shortage is reaching a crisis level, and Next Generation in Trucking Association, Inc. is finding a solution to keep the country moving. Founded in 2020, in part by ATS, the Next Generation in Trucking Association is a non-profit trade association with the mission to promote trucking as a positive career field; create programs that encourage CDL and Diesel Technician training of our nation’s youth; and connect them to training and employment opportunities. The organization’s volunteer leadership consists of industry professionals who are passionate about trucking, career technical education, and providing our emerging workforce with a pathway to well-paying and rewarding careers. Membership consists of industry stakeholders who share our mission: students, teachers, schools, business professionals, partners, and sponsors.
Next Generation in Trucking Association is working on providing scholarships for students needing help to get their CDL. In reaching out to high school students who are looking for a good paying career straight out of high school instead of wanting to go to college and worry about if there will be jobs in their field and how much debt they will owe when they graduate. For many, the idea of a career paying $50k out of high school after vocational training that takes less than 3 months, and in some cases, about a month, is much more appealing than 4 years of college with tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt afterwards.
