SkillsUSA

A national professional organization for career and technical students, SkillsUSA provides leadership, citizenship and character development programs and activities, as well as opportunities for awards, tools, and scholarships through local, district, state, national and even international competitions in trade, leadership and demonstration programs.

SkillsUSA emphasizes respect for the dignity of work, quality products and services, leadership, and concern for others. Members also learn about the democratic process and proper business procedure through the ordinary workings of the organization at the local level. In addition, members participate in activities, workshops and conferences to develop their job skills as well as their personal communication and leadership abilities. Through community service projects, they learn the value of service to others as a lifetime commitment.

What does SkillsUSA do?

"SkillsUSA activities develop positive attitudes, build self-esteem and empower students to excel. They give students a head start in developing valuable professional skills such as communications, interpersonal abilities, time management, teamwork and more. Because SkillsUSA works hand-in-hand with business and industry, students get the skills employers want."
