Welcome back! Become a Champion!

Welcome back to another school year and another opportunity to make a difference in students’ lives. As you kick off the school year, I encourage each advisor to take a look at the SkillsUSA membership kits and the lesson plan activities set up to introduce and engage students. SkillsUSA Minnesota serves more than 2,500 students, instructors and alumni annually and answers the call of American industry by helping to produce better - prepared employees for the technical workforce. Minnesota has 202 chapters located across the state. The first Advisor Update of the year is always a big one, lots of good stuff to tell you about, so I have broken this into four sections along with few important notes up front:

  • The SkillsUSA Framework
  • Membership Guidelines
  • Announcements
  • Fall 2015
  • 2015 - 2016 Calendar of Events

Kennedy Students from SkillsUSA bring Project Santa to Tubman Shelter

Kennedy Students from SkillsUSA

Kennedy High School students from SkillsUSA, a career and technical skills association and competition, delivered Project Santa to the Tubman shelter in St. Paul on Wednesday afternoon, December 21, 2011. The project was started in 2004 and each year Kennedy SkillsUSA students raise money for small gifts and a party for families staying at the shelter. Sixty stockings filled with small games and toys for young children, six gift cards for teens and thirty-two gift baskets for mothers were handed out to the families using the shelter. The shelter also received a $170 cash donation from the students. Tubman is the state’s largest provider of domestic violence services, with over 20% of all Minnesota shelter beds for women and children experiencing family violence.
