Skills Ontario Alumni have unique personal stories about how the Skills Ontario Competition has helped them achieve success in their lives, by building confidence and pushing their skills to another level. Seeing Skills Ontario competitors succeed is why Skills Ontario supporters (including alumni!) stay involved and grow the reach of Skills Ontario programs each year!

Skills Ontario invites alumni to volunteer with us at our annual Appreciation Evening as ‘Skills Ambassadors,’ on Thursday, December 7, from 6pm to 10pm. This is a theatre night for Skills Ontario to celebrate and show appreciation to sponsors and volunteers. There will be an hour-long reception (6-7pm) where ‘Skills Ambassadors’ are encouraged to mingle and represent stories of alumni success. Following the reception, all guests and volunteers will enjoy a live stage performance of Beauty and the Beast.

For more information and to sign up as a ‘Skills Ambassador’ volunteer, please email Jenn Green, President of the Skills Ontario Alumni Association at We are seeking a maximum of 20 volunteers, who will receive complimentary tickets for themselves and a guest to the evening’s performance of Beauty and the Beast.
