WorldSkills is proud to recognize World Youth Skills Day (WYSD) on 15 July 2018! Use #SkillsChangeLives and #WYSD to join WorldSkills and the United Nations, to raise awareness on the importance of youth developing skills.

We believe #SkillsChangeLives. Through the power of skills individuals, communities, and countries are propelled towards a more prosperous future. To share these stories we partnered with #HashTagOurStories to host free online social media workshops leading up to World Youth Skills Day. Over 70 Competitors, Members and partners took part in the sessions.

Our Champions Trust representatives were tasked to put their new skills to the test to show us how skills change their lives. Following are highlights of their stories. Watch more stories on our Facebook page.
