Student Organizations

Leadership can be defined as the ability to preside, guide, or manage self, others, activities or events with responsibility for the final outcome. CTE Student Organization programs and activities provide students the opportunity to extend what they learn in the classroom. These activities and events are opportunities to interact in a professional environment with a diverse group of peers while learning from professionals in industries related to the curricula. These would include various meetings, community service projects, and local, state, regional, national and international activities, conferences and or competitions.
