Celebrating 65 Years of Empowering America’s Future Workforce


Drive to 65 logoAs SkillsUSA nears its 65th anniversary in 2030, the organization is both reflecting on its past and shaping its future. Since 1965, SkillsUSA has been serving students preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations, all in an effort to ensure America has a skilled workforce. While there’s data to show that SkillsUSA makes career and technical education (CTE) work better, the growing skills gap and rising income inequality point to the need to do more for students. SkillsUSA stands ready to meet that challenge. SkillsUSA has created bold plans and stretch goals to meet the workforce development challenges. Needs this big, this important, require bold solutions and steadfast commitment. With the support of our partner network, SkillsUSA will build the future skilled workforce our nation depends on with students who are career-ready, day one.
