Skills USA

Skills USA

 

SkillsUSA is a national, nonprofit student organization.   Hundreds of American industries have turned to SkillsUSA as the source for employees who exemplify “Champions at Work” in both skills and attitudes.

SkillsUSA’s mission is to empower its members to become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens.  At the heart of this mission are SkillsUSA’s core values: integrity, responsibility, citizenship, service and respect.  SkillsUSA Georgia is focused on serving high school students involved in Architecture, Construction, Communication, Cosmetology, Public Safety, and Transportation pathways.

Career technical education and SkillsUSA exist because we believe every student deserves career success. It’s that simple. We’re in the business of ensuring students are ready to excel in the workplace and as leaders of their communities. It’s an awesome responsibility, but one to embrace because it defines our legacy of positively influencing student lives and supporting our nation’s economic future.

What do students need for career readiness? We believe the answer resides in the SkillsUSA framework for developing personal, workplace and technical skills.
