The SkillsUSA Hope Fund was established in 2019 to provide emergency scholarships for individual students in crisis to further their trade education, and for chapters affected by natural disasters. The fund is building during 2019 and we anticipate opening scholarships in 2020. We encourage our SkillsUSA staff, state association directors, board and foundation members, teachers and all stakeholders and supporters to consider making a donation to help the fund launch the Hope Fund. To donate, go to: www.skillsusa.org/get-involved/donate/skillsusa-hope-fund/.
