What Is a CTSO (Career and Technical Student Organization)?

  • Any student enrolled in a CTE program is eligible for membership in the Career and Technical Student Association (CTSO) associated with that program.
  • CTSOs develop leadership, teamwork, technical and citizenship skills, which are essential for the workplace and further education.
  • CTSOs provide opportunities for developing social competencies.
  • CTSOs provide a unique instructional method for attaining the technical skills and objectives identified in each program. Their activities are considered a part of the instructional day, and, as such, are co-curricular, not extra-curricular.
  • A career and technical student organization is an integral part of each program.
