    SkillsUSA Is Changing Lives!
    SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers, and industry leaders working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce today and into the future. Originally founded in 1965 as Vocational Industrial Clubs of America (VICA), SkillsUSA is a national organization that empowers its members to become world-class workers, leaders, and responsible citizens.

    SkillsUSA helps students excel. With a nationwide network of members to bond with, our students develop their self-confidence, work attitude, and communication skills through leadership, teamwork, and community service. While competing at the district, state, and national levels in their technical areas, our students discover and grow their career passions and learn to value their own self-worth.
