About The Excel Institute
The Excel Institute (“Excel”) is a Washington, D.C. based 501(c)(3), licensed post secondary educational institution founded in 1997 by former Washington Redskin George Starke, and John Lyon, CEO of Parking Management Inc. Excel established an Automotive Workforce Development Training Program (AWDTP) to generate opportunities for the community by providing scholarships for vocational training in the field of automotive technology for at-risk youth and adults. The institute’s mission has always been to provide a center of excellence for the development of job skills, career and technical education to those who seek a better life.
Excel’s AWDTP, which includes basic literacy education, life skills development, career counseling and job placement services, addresses the following needs: (1) training the unproductive and unemployed for jobs in automotive technology, (2) accepting at-risk youth and adults who do not qualify for entry into other educational programs, and (3) addressing the low literacy rate of school dropouts by providing basic literacy skills and High School Equivalency (GED) instruction.
Located at 2851 V Street, N.E., Washington, DC, Excel welcomes a diverse student body that includes: multiple age groups, various ethnicities, men and women, individuals with a history of crime or substance abuse, school dropouts, the unemployed, low-income earners, and disabled individuals. Excel accepts students, above the age of sixteen, from the Washington D.C. metropolitan area that want to build a better life.
