About SkillsUSA Council
SkillsUSA Council is a coalition of business and industry partners committed to fostering a world-class workforce through career and technical training to support local economic and community growth in the Greater Lehigh Valley. At the five local career and technical high schools we serve, SkillsUSA Council promotes mastery of 21st century career skills, training students in effective communication, professional decorum, financial literacy, and collaborative teamwork. Through competitions, workshops, and conferences, we seek to produce a hard-working generation of creative and compassionate critical thinkers.
All students graduating from our partner career & technical education schools will possess 21st-century career skills—effective communication, professional decorum, financial literacy, work ethic, competitive spirit, and collaborative teamwork—which will complement their technical training, preparing them for employment and leadership in the Greater Lehigh Valley.
