National Week of Service

May 3-9, 2020

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 3-9, 2020. This helps commemorate the founding of SkillsUSA (May 8, 1965).

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.
