The SkillsUSA Framework illustrates how students fulfill the mission of the organization “to empower members to become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens.”

What it does
  • Provides a common language for students to articulate what they gain from SkillsUSA participation to employers, school administrators, parents and other students
  • Assesses student skill development along a learning continuum of awareness, demonstration and mastery
  • Creates a vision for SkillsUSA programs at the local, state and national levels to ensure quality student-led experiences that build skills in all members
Why it works
  • Empowers every student to achieve career success
  • Delivers a skill set demanded by business and industry but lacking in many employees today
  • Ensures that every student member receives a consistent and specific skill set
