SkillsUSA empowers its members to become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens. We improve the quality of our nation’s future skilled workforce through the development of SkillsUSA Framework skills that include personal, workplace and technical skills grounded in academics. Our vision is to produce the most highly skilled workforce in the world, providing every member the opportunity for career success.

Five Big Things Made Possible by SkillsUSA

Nationwide Network of students and instructors in a common bond with industry. We’ve grown from 26 state and territorial associations to 53 and served nearly 14 million annual members total since 1965. More than 650 businesses, corporations, trade associations and labor unions are partners at the national level alone, with thousands more supporting at state and local levels.

Employability and Leadership Training with award-winning curricula, such as the Professional Development Program (now SkillsUSA Career Essentials: Experiences), in support of our Program of Work. Our training, conducted in more than 17,489 classroom sections, provides applied instruction –– and opportunities for CTE students to lead as officers and serve as chapter members.

Civically Engaged chapters conduct thousands of community service activities every year, using their occupational and leadership skills to benefit their neighbors, hometowns and the nation. CTE students gain public respect and understanding as a result. As important, they experience the exhilaration of helping others as they become Champions at Work.

Skilled Workforce. We are addressing both the skills gap and skilled worker shortages through programs such as the SkillsUSA Championships and industry-driven SkillsUSA Career Essentials: Assessments. We serve 130 occupational titles that represent one-quarter of the jobs offered by our nation’s economy. Our work is very much about America’s future.

Representing CTE. From local school boards to governors and statehouses and all the way to Washington, D.C., SkillsUSA continues to send a long line of red blazers to talk with policymakers, legislators and the news media about the purpose of career education and how important it is to students and employers. Our students are the “face” of CTE.
