CTSO: Career & Technical Student Organizations

Any student enrolled in a career and technical course is eligible for membership in the career and technical student organization associated with that program.

CTSOs develop character, citizenship, technical, leadership, and teamwork skills essential for students who are preparing for the workforce and post-secondary education. They enhance students' civic awareness and provide opportunities for developing social competencies and a wholesome attitude about living and working.

CTSO’s are an integral part of the Career and Technical Education program. These co-curricular connections provide students leadership, personal growth, and career success through soft-skill development.

Members are provided opportunities to compete with other students in regional, state, and national conferences. Events are aligned with classroom instruction students receive or to workplace readiness skills.
