Community Service Opportunity

Community service is one of the pillars of SkillsUSA. Service Orientation is one of our 17 Essential Elements and giving back to our local communities is a fantastic way to practice putting service orientation into action. This community service project being statewide allows all of SkillsUSA Georgia to get involved with the one goal of giving back to individual communities and growing as individuals, chapters, and a state association as a whole.

For SkillsUSA Georgia’s 2023 Community Service Project we would like every chapter to show their support for the organization CHRIS 180.

CHRIS 180 helps children, young adults and families who have experienced trauma change the direction of their lives to become more productive, self-sufficient members of the community. They do this through mental health counseling, training, providing safe housing and real-world skill building. CHRIS 180's goal is to help those that they serve build resiliency to overcome life's challenges.

CHRIS 180 is local to Atlanta, Georgia and CHRIS is an acronym that stands for their core values: Creativity, Honor, Respect, Integrity and Safety.

Local chapters can participate by collecting and packaging the below items. Chapter members could spend time assembling various kits and care packages. There are many options for donating to CHRIS 180 and however your chapter decides to participate is fantastic!
