Subaru Loves Learning®
We’re committed to supporting students from all communities through a variety of partnerships, donations, and volunteer efforts. Together with our retailers, we have helped over 300,000 students in need.
Our partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org allows us to help provide school supplies to students in need across the country. We are also proud to be the largest corporate sponsor of AdoptAClassroom.org. Subaru and its retailers supported 167,943 students in 2022.
In 2022, Subaru adopted all grade 6–8 classrooms in the Camden City School District, allocating $500 for each teacher, via AdoptAClassroom.org, to purchase necessary classroom supplies. Teachers also received a handpicked adoption kit that included supplies and a special message.
We supplemented that donation with one of the largest volunteer events of the year. In August, we launched a single-day initiative to:
11 Public Schools
Subaru University (Subaru-U) supports a variety of secondary and post-secondary automotive technology education programs throughout the U.S. Subaru-U strives to better prepare our next generation of leaders for future careers at Subaru retailers and the automobile industry as a whole. The program is free, and Subaru-U invites schools from all communities to apply.
Subaru-U is currently serving more secondary schools than any other automaker. We partnered with 445 secondary and post-secondary schools in 2022, sponsored 130 interns, and trained 3,667 students in our program. Sixty-seven students will become full-time technicians at Subaru this year.
AAAS and Nurturing a Love for Science
Subaru believes in investing in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Our love of learning has led to our support of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), a library providing online activities to students in grades K–8 on science-based topics, in English and Spanish.
We believe in celebrating science, writing, and illustration that inspires children and young adults and helps draw a curiosity toward STEM. Through our partnership with AAAS, we recognized the most outstanding pieces of literature through the AAAS/Subaru Prize for Excellence in Science Books. Prize winners included books covering life and death in nature, a guide to the science of your digestion, a celebration of fungi, and a look at what happened after the asteroid hit Earth.
