SkillsUSA was founded by students and teachers who were serious about their professions and identified the need for more training in the areas of leadership to complement their chosen career. Through SkillsUSA, students have the opportunity to develop themselves both personally and professionally. This is partnership of students, teachers, and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled work force.
