What is SkillsUSA?

SkillsUSA is a national organization of students, teachers, and industry working together to ensure America maintains a skilled workforce.

Nash Community College students who are preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations, can benefit from programs and experiences leading to job readiness.

Students also have the opportunity to compete in state and national competitions where they demonstrate occupational and leadership skills and win valuable prizes. Members develop technical, academic and work readiness skills that help them jump-start a successful career. Through chapter meetings, competition, and leadership conferences, students build the skill set to succeed.

Chapter meetings are held each semester, check the NCC Google calendar for dates and times. For more information contact
