“SkillsUSA serves 130 occupational titles in construction, transportation, manufacturing and other economic sectors. That’s a lot of boots on the ground,” said Tim Lawrence, executive director of SkillsUSA. “Because work boots are essential to the safety and comfort of people on the job, we particularly appreciate this new support by WorkBoots.com for our members and their instructional programs,” he said.
This partnership of students, teachers and industry works together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. It helps students discover and grow their career passion. SkillsUSA annually serves over 303,000 high school and, college/postsecondary students, and their instructors in technical, skilled and service occupation instructional programs. SkillsUSA chapters are in career and technical high schools, and two- and four-year colleges. The organization emphasizes respect for the dignity of work, ethics, workmanship, scholarship and safety.
After learning more about SkillUSA’s mission and dedication to the skilled workforce, the leadership team at WorkBoots.com decided to join their cause and contribute to their goals.
“As a retailer who caters to the working men and women of America, we want to show our support of the essential skills and contributions they make every day,” said Chad Weinman, CEO of WorkBoots.com. “Not only are we helping to support this foundation, but this also gives current workers the opportunity to sponsor the next generation of skilled workers by making a donation to their education.”
