Skills USA is a national nonprofit student organization that serves students enrolled in career and technical education training programs at our nation’s public high schools and colleges. Skills USA’s mission is to become world-class workers and responsible American citizens.
Skills USA complements technical skills training with instruction in the employability skills that make a well-rounded worker and citizen. Founded in 1965, Skills USA has developed nearly 9.5 million workers through active partnerships between employers and educators
Our chapter focuses on the needs of our campus and community. The seven areas of our program of work are:

  1. • Professional development
  2. • Community Service
  3. • Employment
  4. • Skills USA Championships
  5. • Public Relations
  6. • Social activities
  7. • Ways and means


SkillsUSA serves trade, industrial, technical and health occupations students. SkillsUSA is designed for the students and run by the students. Because the students are SkillsUSA members, they have the opportunity to make the most of their lives, starting now. In their SkillsUSA chapter, they are working with other students who share the same interests.

SkillsUSA chapters choose, plan and conduct their own activities. As a member, you will develop into a well-rounded person with social and leadership skills as well as occupational skills. SkillsUSA instills spirit and a desire to learn, to grow and, to become a productive citizen.

SkillsUSA prepares America's high performance workers. It provides quality educational experiences for students in technical and health occupations programs in leadership, teamwork, citizenship, and character development. It builds and reinforces self-confidence, work attitudes and communications skills. It emphasizes total quality at work, high ethical standards, superior work skills, life-long education and pride in the dignity of work. SkillsUSA also promotes understanding of the free enterprise system and involvement in community service activities.
