The Youth Development Foundation
of SkillsUSA Inc.
The Youth Development Foundation (YDF) is SkillsUSA's philanthropic arm. The Foundation seeks to involve representatives of business, industry, organized labor, SkillsUSA alumni and other interested parties in the active financial and volunteer support of the programs and activities of SkillsUSA.
A committee of key business leaders from corporate America assists in fund raising; offers expert advice and counsel; oversees SkillsUSA's programs, activities and events; and approves all financial contributions. The Foundation raises approximately 25 percent of SkillsUSA's overall operating budget each year. In addition to this operating support, funds are raised for travel scholarships for students and instructors to the SkillsUSA Championships and the WorldSkills Competition; inner city programs; chapter management and leadership institutes; scholarships to College/Postsecondary institutions; and special projects that benefit SkillsUSA members.
