About the L.E.A.D.

L.E.A.D. is a two-day leadership conference that helps SkillsUSA members find their “start button” through hands-on, high-energy and motivational programming. L.E.A.D. is open to all SkillsUSA Illinois student leaders.

During the course of the conference, participants discover how to ignite the leader within them and maximize their potential. Participants spend time working together in a project management atmosphere. Collectively they learn teamwork to set and accomplish goals. They take a look at what it means to present a responsible, positive image – and the effects that image can have not only on themselves, but also on their school, SkillsUSA, and career and technical education.
