Who We Are:
SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. SkillsUSA helps each student excel. We provide educational programs, events and competitions that support career and technical education (CTE) in the nation’s classrooms. Learn more about SkillsUSA.
Fifty years ago, 200 students, teachers and administrators held a conference at a hotel in Nashville, Tenn. In founding the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America, their goal was to establish a nationwide organization to represent trade and industrial education and to serve student needs.
Now, SkillsUSA changes lives every day. Students discover and grow their career passions and appreciate their own self-worth through the work and dedication of instructors, administrators, association directors, industry partners and alumni.
We continue to reach toward the founders’ vision, but — bottom line — our core purpose is the same: to help instructors reach and engage their students so their students will succeed.
SkillsUSA is privileged to serve students, schools, colleges and industry, and the most inspiring instructors and administrators in American education.
