Activate – Student Leader Training


For Chapter Student Leaders

June 20-22, 2020
Kentucky Exposition Center, Louisville, Ky. $165 per participant


Get ready to be activated! Activate is a two-and-a-half-day leadership conference that will help SkillsUSA members find their “start button” through hands-on, high-energy and motivational programming. Activate is open to all SkillsUSA student leaders. During the course of the conference, chapter leaders will discover how to ignite the leader in them and maximize their potential.

Participants will spend time working together in a project management atmosphere. Collectively they will learn to work as a team to set and accomplish goals. They will take a look at what it means to present a positive image — and the effects that image can have not only on themselves, but also on their school, SkillsUSA, and career and technical education. Participants can expect to grow their skill set in the following areas:

  • project management
  • values and character
  • maximizing strengths and talents
  • goal setting
  • time management
  • responsibility and self-discipline
  • leadership characteristics
  • teamwork
  • conflict resolution
  • respecting others
  • communication
  • facilitation

Students will complete the course feeling empowered with the necessary tools for success.

Cost of the Activate conference is $165 per participant. Register here for Activate.
