Support the Trades in Fashion

SkillsUSA has once again teamed up with Tractor Supply Company (TSC) and Carhartt for the “Support the Trades” campaign, designed to raise awareness of SkillsUSA and help close the skilled trades gap. As part of the campaign, Carhartt and TSC have an expanded “Support the Trades” line of shirts and hats designed by Carhartt, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to SkillsUSA! Show your pride for the skilled trades you proudly represent and the “Champions at Work” who keep our nation moving. The exclusive T-shirts and hats for women and men are now available at Tractor Supply Online or your local TSC store. Check out this promotional video and follow the campaign on SkillsUSA’s social media this fall.

CHARGE is a weekly video series that covers topics that chapter officers will find useful in the day-to-day management of their local SkillsUSA chapters. Each CHARGE video features an activity guide to support chapter officer growth and development. There are 12 three-minute episodes in the series. Access CHARGE here.
