Student Leadership Opportunities

Students in CTE classes have the opportunity to join a Career and Technical Student Organization (or equivalent club). Check out our running list of CTSOs (sorted by area, school, and advisor) or talk to your Career Connected Learning Coordinator about how to get connected at your school! This list will continue to grow as more teachers sign up!
