There’s an old saying that experience is the best teacher. The hands-on experience that’s synonymous with SkillsUSA is a testament to that fact. Sometimes, though, we can also learn valuable lessons through the experiences of others who’ve traveled the same roads we’re preparing to navigate, and that’s what SkillsUSA’s new “Pour the IndusTEA” program is all about.

In the first of what will hopefully be many Pour the IndusTEA events, SkillsUSA national officers joined forces with business and industry panelists to connect SkillsUSA teachers and students with successful industry role models sharing career-specific insights. After meeting for a general overview, participants of this nationwide virtual event broke into smaller groups organized by career cluster for in-depth panel discussions, Q&A sessions and an overview of trends and job outlooks specific to their industry.

Overall, more than 540 participants representing 14 career clusters participated, and social reach for the event extended to thousands more through Facebook and Instagram.
