SkillsUSA Mission Support

Champion the Trades


SkillsUSA is America’s proud champion of the skilled trades, and our mission is to empower students to become skilled professionals, career-ready leaders and responsible community members. Donating to support our mission makes you a partner in its accomplishment. That means you’re helping change lives, schools, workplaces, communities and our nation for the better.

Before I joined SkillsUSA, I wasn’t involved in my class at all. I didn’t really talk to anybody. I just did my work and left. And then I joined SkillsUSA, I became an officer in my chapter, and I met a whole bunch of friends. I started to talk to people more. I’m so much more of a leader now. I am a totally different person now since I’ve joined SkillsUSA. I like myself now. It’s like a breath of fresh air.
