On May 4, 2021, The Home Depot will partner with SkillsUSA for National Signing Day and, in celebration and support of high school seniors entering the skilled trades industry, The Home Depot Foundation will provide six scholarships totaling $30,000. Focused on career readiness and training the next generation of tradespeople, these scholarships will go toward covering each student’s trade school tuition.
Recipients will be selected by The Home Depot Foundation and SkillsUSA and announced on National Signing Day. And as part of the all-day celebration, The Home Depot, alongside valued supplier partner Klein Tools – which has offered professional-grade tools to tradesmen since 1857 – will cheer on SkillsUSA’s graduating seniors in the Southeast. Delivering gear, pizza and even a virtual appearance from football star Jimmy Garoppolo and his father, Tony, the two companies are coming together to embrace the next generation of talent.
With oversight to much of the Southeast including The Home Depot’s Atlanta headquarters and 11 other territories, The Home Depot and Klein Tools are building upon the program’s momentum as they look to engage and support students pursuing careers in the construction trades.
