SkillsUSA sponsors a national recognition opportunity called the Student2Student mentoring program. Mentoring connects young people to personal growth and development, as well as economic opportunities.
Student2Student recognizes SkillsUSA chapters that are involved in a mentoring program in their communities. When a SkillsUSA chapter mentors an elementary- or middle-school classroom, it helps younger students imagine careers and helps older students practice their skills. To enter, submit yourmentoring project. The winning chapter will be recognized at the National Leadership and Skills Conference and in the Awards and Recognition book. In addition, the winner will be invited to present at SkillsUSA University.
All entries must be submitted by April 1. Winners are announced in May. To download a Mentoring Guide or enter your program for recognition, go to: www.skillsusa.org/programs/mentoring-student2student/
