Local Alumni play an important role in helping instructors maintain an active SkillsUSA chapter within their technical program. Managing a local chapter takes time and energy. Technical teachers are increasingly expected to meet a variety of state and national standards, integrate new technology and helps students meet challenging graduation requirements. These challenges can make it difficult to also run a quality SkillsUSA chapter. However, a little help from volunteers can make all the difference in the program, and provide students with the extra support they need to run a quality program of work.
Alumni can provide experience and expertise to the local SkillsUSA program. Roles can include serving as a local program advisory committee member, job placement coordinator, volunteer at a local and/or state conference, contest judge, guest speaker, etc... Alumni know the challenges of organizing activities. Moreover, many Alumni have gained new insight from their own career experiences and are willing to share their knowledge, time and expertise with former instructors. Being able to help your former program is a very rewarding experience! SkillsUSA Alumni members can also serve at the national level in a variety of roles. The level of involvement depends upon the individual and his or her interests.
