Mayor's Education Coalition

The Fontana Mayor’s Education Coalition is an intentional partnership of stakeholders from education, business and the community committed to creating fulfilling career opportunities for local students.

 The brainchild of Mayor Acquanetta Warren, the Coalition consists of representatives of local school districts, the Chamber of Commerce, trade organizations, the city itself and others – all of whom believe our City’s future rests with tens of thousands of young people who call Fontana home.

Over its two-year history, the Coalition has created unique career-pathway initiatives designed to inspire and engage high school students throughout the City around the college, career and trade opportunities in front of them.


Planes, Trains & Autonomous Vehicles (PTAV)

Initiatives: Transportation Sector Career Series 

This series of career-inspiration sessions are being provided to high school students that are interested in perusing a career in a field related to transportation. Working with regional partners the PTAV was able to connect regional representatives in these fields to help educate local students as they are preparing to join the workforce. This event series takes place at strategic locations, every Saturday in October from 9 am-12:00p. Each day features a different topic presented to students by experts in that field.
