SLSC Special Programs

SkillsUSA Florida 2019 State Leadership & Skills Conference Special Programs

We have lots of special programs for everyone to be apart of at this year’s SLSC! Take a look to see what is offered and how to apply:

 

Aim Hire

Aim Hire is an initiative that will encourage students to develop essential workplace skills. Students will discover elements of professionalism and soft skills that are in demand by industry. SkillsUSA helps each student excel, and Aim Hire is designed to be the first steps in a lifelong journey of professional development. This year, Aim Hire will be holding sessions on Improving Yourself, Working with Others, and SkillsUSA Leadership. By developing leadership skills, these students are setting themselves up for future employment. Three different sessions will be offered each day of the conference at 9 AM, 11 AM, and 1 PM. Students are encouraged to participate in at least one session. Click here to register! For more information, email Abigail Taverne at abigailt@skillsusafl.org. The deadline to apply is March 20th.
