Just One Week of ServiceYields Long-term Results

It’s ironic that many report getting the most from activities where they’re giving the most. Maybe that’s why SkillsUSA’s National Week of Service is becoming so popular among SkillsUSA chapters.

As part of the next national service week (May 4-10), all chapters are invited to conduct a community service project to showcase the good work of SkillsUSA students and bring attention to the values of career and technical education through local (or even national) media coverage.

If the thought of carrying out a service project leaves you wondering where to begin, don’t panic; SkillsUSA has simplified the process through detailed online resources. Go to: and download the Community Service Guide. As a class, work through each section. You’ll have your event planned in no time, as well as ideas on how to promote it.

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
— Anne Frank
