Career and Technical student organizations connect classroom learning to the world of work in fun and innovative ways. All students enrolled in CTE may participate.
Members compete with their knowledge and skills at regional, state and national levels, gaining confidence and competence. They plan and participate in service projects for the community, and they serve as officers in their local, state and national organizations, learning teamwork and leadership first-hand.
Ask your career development coordinator, special populations coordinator, or guidance counselor which clubs are available at your school.
