Professional Development: Becoming a professional involves more than skill. Be aware of the importance of labor and management in the work force. Plan a chapter project in addition to section workshops. TJ holds elections for officers. Bi-monthly chapter meetings are held, which the officers organized and lead. A possible guest may be invited to the chapter meetings.
Community Service: Let your community know about your school. Show them what students can do. Promote goodwill by planning activities: Adopt a needy family at the holidays. This year we will be doing a food drive for Thanksgiving and Christmas for TJ families.
Ways and Means: Fund-raising activities allow you the financial means to carry out other projects. Fundraising events for TJ’s SkillsUSA will be done this year in November and December of 2015. We will be selling and ButterBraids, World’s Finest Chocolates. A car wash will be done in October, and a chili dinner sale during the TJ Art festival.
SkillsUSA Championship: Every year we have a in house competition to see who will be going to the Colorado State competition. Web & Video classes compete against each other one day and 3D another day. Photography will take an exhibition trip, and Software Programming will be done during class. This takes the whole day and the students compete to see if they will qualify for State Conference competition.
Public Relations: Informing the community about chapter activities and achievements means credit to you and your school. Almost every SkillsUSA activity has public relations value. Here at TJ SkillsUSA information is published on the school website, tjhs.dpsk12.org. When needed it is also announced on our local public broadcast Spartan Edition show. Many posters are hung around TJ to publicize this program.
