You know why you’re involved and what you want to get out of that involvement. You know what SkillsUSA is to you . But have you ever tried explaining what it is to someone who’s not a member? As a class, split into three groups and have each group answer “What is SkillsUSA?” as if the question’s being asked by one of the following: a student, a business and industry representative, and a parent. Using some official lingo is great, but also try tailoring your answers to your audience. What would impress these people? What would make them interested in learning more? What would make them feel as if SkillsUSA could serve their interests? Reconvene and share your answers, and remember them the next time the question strikes (and it will). Get more ideas with the newly updated What is SkillsUSA? DVD. Find it at: www. .
