“We want to slap you on the back AMERICA, and say THANK YOU for a job well done.”
"This is the message of “Skills Building America”, an IRS approved not-for-profit organization.
Over the last two and a half decades and still today, we have become a society where ‘Bart Simpson’,
the consummate underachiever, is billed as a hero by both young and old. For this reason the “Skills
Building America” message needs to be heard by everyone. In particular, by our youth-at-risk; it
could mean the difference between unfulfilled dreams and becoming a productive citizen. Just as
important, our message needs to heard by those women and men currently in our work force that feel
their work is taken for granted. Furthermore, this message needs to be heard by our educators in order
that they may recognize and support those students who desire to work in the ‘Trades’ and not pursue a
college degree immediately after high school. America was built by crafts persons with skills learned
through hard work and dedication (blood, sweat, and tears) the so called School-of-Hard-Knocks !
“SKILLS BUILDING AMERICA” proclaims that today’s workers are hard at work honing their skills to
continue to build America, as they have for the last two hundred-forty years. Through Skills
Assessment, Career counseling, Hands-on Job Training, and Job Placement into careers which are
upwardly mobile and provide an open pathway to a life-long career, we are helping to rebuild America's
Work-Force...'one class at a time'.
