As part of their annual program of work, SkillsUSA asks all chapters to conduct and promote a community-service project during the National Week of Service, May 6-12, 2018. You may also conduct your project at any time during the year, then promote it again during the week of service. This helps commemorate the founding of SkillsUSA (May 8, 1965).

SkillsUSA has created a Community Service Guide and customizable media releases, public service announcements and thank-you letters to help generate publicity for your service event.

Available for purchase is the turnkey CD-ROM to help your students organize a community service project: Champions Serving Others CD.

We want to showcase your event!

Connect with SkillsUSA via social media by posting photos of your activities online. Advisors should email a brief description of their chapter’s events to Gayle Silvey at gsilvey@skillsusa.org. In return, we’ll send the chapter advisor or officer a SkillsUSA logo gift item valued at $15 to say thanks.
