CTE STUDENT LEADERSHIP ORGANIZATIONSInformation Technology Logo
Student leadership organizations were established with the commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of young people. In addition to offering a wide variety of specific career and technical training, CTE integrates student leadership elements, which complements student participation in these courses and programs. The term ”Career and Technical Student Organizations” (CTSOs) means an organization for individuals enrolled in a career and technical education program that engages in leadership activities as an integral part of the instructional program.
