Car Seat Clinic
Virginia Tire & Auto is proud to be the title sponsor of both Saving Loudoun’s Littles and Saving Prince William Littles, programs dedicated to providing car seat checks for the Loudoun and Prince William communities. We are committed to working with these programs with the sole purpose of keeping kids safe in vehicles.
In addition to sponsoring this initiative, Virginia Tire & Auto is taking an active role in the car seat inspection effort by certifying Virginia Tire & Auto associates as Passenger Safety Technicians and hosting monthly car seat clinics. Several Virginia Tire & Auto associates received their national certification after going through 30+ hours of hands-on car seat installation training.
Each month we host a car seat clinic at our Loudoun County stores, where our certified technicians inspect residents’ car seats and teach them how to make sure they are secure. According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 7 out of 10 children are incorrectly restrained in a vehicle, which can be very dangerous in the event of an accident. Schedule an appointment for one of our clinics to make sure your car seat is installed correctly.
Wheels For Work
For some of us, not having a car means not working. And that’s not an option. Virginia Tire & Auto’s Wheels for Work program provides free automotive repair services to low-income families. Since its beginning, we’ve helped families in need through a partnership with Shelter House. We’ve performed over $20,000 worth of repairs pro bono. Shelter House awarded us with the title of community champion, and we’re proud to be helping our friends and neighbors.
Fairfax County Public School Internship Program
Virginia Tire & Auto’s award-winning internship program partners with Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) and other local public high schools to offer internships to students interested in the auto repair industry. During the 12-week program, the interns work at one of our locations and are exposed to all aspects of our business. They have rotations in sales, writing service, tech work and the Virginia State Safety Inspection program. In 2017, the FCPS Board awarded Virginia Tire & Auto the Virginia School Boards Association Business award for our support of increasing career advancement and real connections between school and work through the internship program.
