Introduce your Product or Company to the Next Generation of Woodworkers

SkillsUSA_CaliforniaBecoming a SkillsUSA partner means exposing your brand to woodworking students and teachers. SkillsUSA is a leading national Career and Technical Education (CTE) organization with over 300,000 student and teacher members. The organization promotes skilled trades as well as employability or “soft” skills. Students compete in their skilled trade area and advance to higher levels, ultimately competing at Nationals in Louisville, KY in June.SkillsUSA_photo
