Youth Development Foundation supporting our greatest resource - our students.

SkillsUSA Georgia is fortunate to have the generous support of corporations, government and military agencies, educational institutions, and associations that help to further the mission and goals of our organization. The Youth Development Foundation (YDF) is SkillsUSA Georgia’s newly-created philanthropic arm. The Foundation seeks to involve representatives of business and industry, organized labor, the government and military sectors, SkillsUSA alumni and teachers, and other interested parties in the active financial and volunteer support of the programs and activities of SkillsUSA Georgia. SkillsUSA Georgia also enjoys partnerships with more than 300 organizations that contribute financial and in-kind resources to support our mission. These in-kind resources include contest supplies and equipment; contest prizes; educational materials; and scholarships for students. In addition to in-kind support, funds are raised for travel scholarships for students to attend the National SkillsUSA Championships.

Partnering with SkillsUSA makes Good Business Sense

SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and employers working together to ensure America’s workforce has the skills necessary to succeed. In fact, partnerships with business and industry are SkillsUSA’s lifeblood. Such support is critical to the successful function of the SkillsUSA Championships. Our students are involved in Career, Technical and Agricultural pathways that will equip them with the ability to compete in the global economy. The SkillsUSA slogan “Champions at Work” emphasizes our goal of preparing America’s high-performance workers. It implies quality educational experiences for students in leadership, teamwork, citizenship and character development. It emphasizes total quality at work: high ethical standards, superior work skills, life-long education, and pride in the dignity of work. Values that every American can support!
