Thanks to a generous $115,000 gift from NAPA Auto Parts and Traction Heavy Duty Parts, BCIT students will be able to train with state-of-the-art tools, ensuring they are job ready upon graduation.

“This gift is a wonderful example of how an investment from industry can help shape BC’s future through our students,” says Jackie Jacob, executive director, BCIT Foundation. “We are so grateful to Napa Auto Parts for their philanthropy and their commitment to helping BCIT graduate the next generation of creators, innovators, and leaders in the trades sector.”

In recognition of their donation, BCIT has named the student learning lab and student lounge at the Motive Power Campus, “Napa Auto Parts & Traction Essentials Skills Lab.”

Napa has a long history of supporting trades education, and many of its employees are BCIT graduates.
