Activate, Engage and Leverage Training
Activate – for Chapter Student Leaders
Activate will be held June 21–23, 2014, in Bartle Hall of the Kansas City Convention Center, Kansas City, Mo. The cost is $135 per participant.
Activate is a ground-breaking, two-and-a-half-day leadership conference that will help SkillsUSA members find their “start button” through action-oriented, high-energy and motivational programming. Activate is open to all SkillsUSA members.
During the course of the conference, chapter leaders will discover how to ignite the leader in them and how to maximize their potential. Participants will spend time learning what motivates them and how to motivate others. They will take a look at what it means to present a positive image — and the effects that image can have not only on themselves, but also on their school, SkillsUSA and career and technical education. Students will complete the course feeling empowered with the necessary tools for success. Visit: skillsusa-register.org to register for Activate.
Engage – for Chapter Advisors
Engage will be held June 21–23, 2014, in Bartle Hall of the Kansas City Convention Center, Kansas City, Mo. The cost is $135 per participant.
Engage is the teacher training program from SkillsUSA that empowers teachers to grow their chapters.

Dave Burgess, author of Teach Like a Pirate, will present a high-energy, interactive and entertaining experience that will leave attendees inspired, motivated and with the practical skills to dramatically increase student engagement.
Engage will focus on new educational resources being launched by SkillsUSA at its national conference. Participants will unpack the new resources and share best practices on how to implement these tools for the greatest impact in their chapters. Teachers participating in Engage will receive a set of all the new resources as a part of the training. Visit: skillsusa-register.org to register for Engage.
Leverage – for State Officers
Leverage is an intensive, two-and-a-half-day leadership experience open to high school and college/postsecondary state officers. It provides state officers with high-energy, motivational training that focuses on servant leadership. Officers will learn in a way that’s fun and unique to the SkillsUSA experience.
SkillsUSA’s state officers are the front-line leaders and managers within the organization. They are responsible for state association activities, recruitment, student development and peer-to-peer communication. Within this role, officers support both individual growth and the growth of the organization. An effective officer embraces personal accountability, accepts a higher level of responsibility, and seeks to create valuable experiences for members at the local level.
All three trainings will take place June 21-23, 2014 in Bartle Hall of the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, Mo. and the cost is $135 per participant. For complete details visit: www.skillsusa.org/events/training.shtml.
