A SkillsUSA advisor has an important role, facilitating student learning. The advisor supports the chapter but should allow the students to take the lead whenever possible. The person doing the work is the one learning the most. Facilitators use good questioning, active listening and coaching to help students set goals, priorities and timelines.

To ensure that the maximum number of students have an active role, each instructor should carryout the following steps inside their own training program:

  • Hold elections to identify student leaders.
  • Train officers in basic leadership and SkillsUSA knowledge.
  • Plan and conduct chapter meetings.
  • Develop a program of activities and calendar.
  • Identify committees or team members to organize activities.

Need a SkillsUSA Mentor?
SkillsUSA offers a New Advisor Mentoring Program, in order to pair up new SkillsUSA advisors with experienced teachers who are members of the National Education Team (NET). NET members assist the national technical committees in conducting and managing the SkillsUSA Championships. The goal is to pair up instructors in the same occupational area for the purpose of information sharing and to answer basic questions. Your mentor may or may not be from your same state. To request a SkillsUSA advisor as your mentor, contact James Kregiel at 703-737-0634 or email jkregiel@skillsusa.org.
