The SkillsUSA Framework illustrates how students fulfill the mission of the organization “to empower members to become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens.”

Why it Works: 

  • Empowers every student to achieve career success

  • Delivers a skill set demanded by business and industry but lacking in many employees today

  • Ensures that every student member receives a consistent and specific skill set
