It’s Here! National Week of Service

As part of SkillsUSA’s annual program of work, we ask local chapters to plan, promote and conduct a community service project during the SkillsUSA National Week of Service, May 5-11. This helps commemorate the organization’s founding on May 8, 1965.

SkillsUSA advisors or chapter officers can email a brief description of their local events and photos to Gayle Silvey at gsilvey@skillsusa.org. In return, we’ll send you a SkillsUSA logo gift item valued at $15 to say thanks.

Help build awareness of SkillsUSA in your community by publicizing your events. To locate contacts for your local area newspapers, use the SkillsUSA Advocacy Site. Go to the webpage, click on the Media tab, enter your ZIP code, and choose up to media five outlets at a time. Next, click on Compose Your Own Letter, and paste in your press release or an invitation to cover your events. To see contact information for each media outlet, click on the name.
