SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry representatives working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. SkillsUSA helps each student to excel. SkillsUSA is a national organization serving teachers and high school and college students who are preparing for careers in technical, skilled and service occupations, including health occupations and for further education. SkillsUSA was formerly known as VICA (the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America).

More than 300,000 students and advisors join SkillsUSA annually, organized into more than 18,000 sections and 52 state and territorial associations. Combining alumni and lifetime membership, the total number served this year is more than 360,000. SkillsUSA has served more than 12.2 million members since its founding in 1965. Over two-thirds of the students at Passaic County Technical Institute are eligible to compete in the state championships in the spring regardless of grade level. Each year, PCTI enrolls their most talented students to the state and national championships to compete with their peers in the same vocational area. These students can run for one of eight officer positions within the chapter as long as they maintain a 3.0 grade point average.
