Career Technical Student Organizations 2020-01-04T15:51:31-07:00

Career Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs) align with the sixteen career clusters. Students involved in these organizations gain hands-on and real world work experience that supplements what they learn in the classroom. Members also have opportunities to develop leadership skills, participate in competitive events and network with fellow students and industry partners. According to Advance CTE, students who participate in CTSOs demonstrate higher levels of academic engagement and motivation, civic engagement, career self-efficacy and employability skills. These organizations engage student members in career and technical education activities as an integral part of the instruction program to meet the needs of a well-trained workforce for the 21st century. CTSO’s also promote leadership to ensure that New Mexico students have opportunities to develop essential skills to become successful employees in a competitive economy.
