Career and technical student organizations (CTSOs) are co-curricular organizations with leadership programs and competitive events that reflect current curriculum standards and competencies for the instructional programs they serve. Teachers infuse the CTSO's activities into the instructional activities, thereby helping students see the real-world value of their academic studies.
CTSOs are a vital part of Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education. They play an integral role in preparing students to become college- and career-ready members of society who hold productive leadership roles in their communities. CTSOs are committed to the growth of students in all CTAE career pathways.
