Matt Fink discusses Mechanic Apprenticeships

Mechanic Apprenticeships is a program sponsored by the Washington Area Auto Dealers that assists High School seniors that are looking for a trade in mechanics and do no want to pursue degrees.

Young people without college degrees struggle to find jobs and many companies find it difficult to locate skilled workers. Matt's Rotary club supports a program that addresses both of these problems.

WANADA provides young people with education, training, and career positions as auto technicians. It is highly successful, placing over 300 young men in women as technicians in dealerships. The program receives funds from the Association, foundations, and 21 rotary clubs.

Matt Fink was employed by the mutual fund trade association, the Investment Company Institute, from 1971 to 2004 and served as the Institute’s President from 1991 to 2004. He is the author of a history of mutual funds, The Rise of Mutual Funds: An Insider’s View. Mr. Fink is an honors graduate of Brown University and Harvard Law School. He and his wife Ellanor live in Chevy Chase, Maryland.  They have three grown children and three grandchildren. His hobbies include tennis and sailing his day sailor on the Severn River. He is a new member of the Bethesda Chevy Chase Rotary Club.
