In April 2012 SkillsUSA signed a partnership agreement with Rebuilding Together. Their mission is to preserve and revitalize houses and communities assuring that low-income homeowners – particularly the elderly, the disabled and families with children – live in warmth, safety and independence. Rebuilding Together aspires to make a sustainable impact on the community.
Each year more than 200,000 skilled and unskilled volunteers from all ages, faiths and walks of life are mobilized by 200 local RT affiliates to complete 10,000 projects. Rebuilding Together affiliates will be reaching out to SkillsUSA chapters seeking volunteers and team leaders. These will be optional opportunities to engage SkillsUSA chapters in worthwhile community service projects.
The two organizations have agreed to promote each other to our respective constituencies, to encourage volunteer engagement in each other’s projects and missions, and to mutually publicize partnership activities.
