SkillsUSA | Georgia Postsecondary About Us




Why Bring SkillsUSA to Your School?

SkillsUSA is a professional organization that is designed to be run by students, for their own growth and benefit. SkillsUSA members develop into well-rounded people with technical, academic and employability skills that will help them get a job and have a successful career. Through chapter meetings, contests, leadership conferences and activities, students will be building these skills. Each chapter chooses, plans and conducts it own activities.

SkillsUSA serves more than 335,000 students and instructors annually and answers the call of American industry by helping to produce better-prepared employees for the technical workforce. The organization has 13,000 school chapters in 54 state and territorial associations. More than 16,500 instructors and administrators are professional members of SkillsUSA.

Along with being a member of SkillsUSA there are other opportunities to put your leadership skills to use. Becoming a state officer is a wonderful way to use and develop your talent. It can be one of the most rewarding experiences for a student. When you consider running for a state office be sure you are doing it for the right reasons. Yes, it can lead to a great title, some travel and can look good on a resume, but holding an office means you agree to take on certain responsibilities and you agree to represent the organization on a national level.
