The main mission of the WorldSkills Russia Juniors movement is to give students an opportunity to consciously choose a profession in a rapidly changing world, then determine their educational path and easily find a place in the labor market.

Firstly, WorldSkills Juniors competitions allow young people to try their hand at a particular profession. Secondly, they get information about it directly from the representatives of the professional community, understand how the industry is structured and see the prospects for future career growth.

All junior skills are developed in analogy with the main WorldSkills skills (both the existing international skills and new ones, for example, in the field of Future Skills). In most cases, they represent an adaptation of an adult skill with account of the age characteristics and capabilities of young competitors.
