We invite all our chapters to participate in the SkillsUSA National Week of Service on May 6-12. Chapters may participate in two ways:
- Conduct a community service project during that week; or
- 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 – firstname.lastname@example.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.
