Skills Clubs

Skills Clubs

Every year, a number of adults in skilled trades and technology careers volunteer their time to share their knowledge with youth through specialized Skills Clubs. In these Skills Clubs, students receive instruction and mentoring from experienced professionals in various occupations from carpentry to welding to graphic design and more.

In most cases, these Skills Clubs are offered to students in grades 9 through 12, although some communities may offer the clubs to a broader age range. Clubs generally include weekly two-hour sessions within an 8-24 week period.  

Many Skills Club participants display what they have learned at the annual Territorial Skills Competition with first place winners advancing to nationals. Some participants also go on to pursue careers in skilled trades and technology.

We greatly appreciate the contribution of our volunteer instructors and the participants who make the efforts worthwhile.
