Thousands of students across the country participate in SkillsUSA competitions each year, but locally in the Lehigh Valley they are also exposed to career training and guidance. As participants within the SkillsUSA Council, students have the opportunity to meet and interact with business leaders at various events and in their workplace. To demonstrate the importance and benefit of the program, we asked alumni to share their personal stories, explaining how SkillsUSA Council helped them achieve their goals. The b-roll captured shows the techniques each student mastered through practice and competition. We also had the opportunity to interview business leaders who are active members of the board of directors. They explained how community involvement is directly related to the success of the program, as well as their own personal benefits from being involved.
