National Week of Service Reminder

April 11th, 2012

We invite all our chapters to participate in the SkillsUSA National Week of Service on May 6-12. Chapters may participate in two ways:

  1. Conduct a community service project during that week; or
  2. Promote a service project the chapter did earlier in the school year during that week.

This will help commemorate the founding of SkillsUSA on May 8, 1965. The SkillsUSA National Week of Service not only shines a spotlight on SkillsUSA’s dedication to serving others, but it also showcases the skills and expertise of career and technical education students who are learning to become tomorrow’s leaders.

We encourage chapter advisors to send a brief report on their community service activities to Niki Clausen at the national headquarters – nclausen@skillsusa.org. Please let us know in a paragraph or two what the chapter does to help the community and we’ll post these reports and photos online.  The first 50 chapters that report Week of Service plans to the national headquarters will receive a free item.

Imagine one amazing week in May when SkillsUSA students nationwide are busy reporting about their community service event or conducting service projects in their communities. Imagine the power they’ll hold in their hands as they and their fellow SkillsUSA members work nationwide to improve the lives of their neighbors in countless ways. Imagine the difference one week can make.

2012 Timberland PRO/SkillsUSA Community Service Day Registration Reminder

April 11th, 2012

Timberland PRO will again host the Community Service Day on Wednesday, June 27, in Kansas City, and they hope to recruit 350 volunteers.  Beginning April 16, state advisors and directors can register the volunteers online at: http://timberlandserviceday.eventbrite.com. The password is Timberland.  All volunteers MUST be registered online.

PLEASE NOTE: Each state has been allotted a certain number of spots. We will be informing state association directors of their numbers. Please do not register more than your state’s allotted amount.  If a state registers more than its allotted registration limit, Timberland will remove the extra registrants from the state. Volunteers will receive service day tickets as proof of registration. Tickets must be taken to the service day event.

Don’t miss out on this fun opportunity as space is limited. Register your group online today and help give back to the Kansas City community. If you have questions or problems registering, please contact Christy Greco at Cgreco@timberland.com.
