Oxnard Union High School District has partnered with the DRAGG program for over ten years and we are grateful for the significant benefits provided to our High School students that participate. DRAGG annually provides positive adult mentorship to our youth along with training opportunities in high need/high wage career pathways in the automotive industry. More importantly, our students in the DRAGG program are accepted, valued, and able to become their best selves. Over the past decade, students in the DRAGG program consistently become thriving adults in our community who our younger students look to as role models. We look forward to a continuing partnership with DRAGG as they build more amazing vehicles and develop community leaders here in Oxnard.

“As Chief of Police for the Oxnard Police Department, I see great value in community partnerships and youth programs. Since 2010, the Oxnard Police Department has partnered with the DRAGG program to mentor our local youth. DRAGG offers a unique opportunity for students to earn school credit while learning auto mechanics. For some of the students, it's one of the few opportunities they get to improve their quality of life. DRAGG provides students with a positive workshop environment, creative field trips, and a connection with local business owners. The mentoring that occurs within the DRAGG program is consistent with our objective of developing more positive contacts with our youth and it helps train them to become tomorrow’s leaders.”
