What is SkillsUSA?

SkillsUSA is a national student association serving over 330,000 high school, college and middle school students who are preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations. SkillsUSA Strives to teach workplace, personal, and technical skills to students in order to prepare them to be outstanding citizens, contributing to the community and the workplace. Aside from skills for the individual, SkillsUSA works with chapters and regions to expand and create community service efforts, instilling a drive for a better world. 


With this focus on careers, it is not surprising that so many of America's top businesses, including Nissan, Lowe's, Praxair, Harbor Freight, John Deere, Toyota, Ferguson, 3M, GE and over 40 other corporations , are sponsors of SKillsUSA's National Program of Work. Likewise, on the local level, our business partners are instrumental to our continued operation. The CAT North chapter of SkillsUSA consists of close to 200 high school students from around the northern Anne Arundel County area representing 22 different trade areas.
