Skills U.S.A. is open to all Lincoln-Way students. It is helpful, but not required, to be enrolled in a full-time preparatory course in trade, industrial, technical, or health education. Skills U.S.A. is a state, national, and international organization.
Our purpose is to develop leadership abilities through participation in educational, vocational, civic, recreational, and social activities. We foster a deep respect for the dignity of work. We assist students in establishing realistic vocational goals. We participate in three (3) leadership conferences a year, and the students are given opportunities to compete in contests demonstrating both leadership and vocational skills.
