With more than two million student members combined, Career and Technical Student Organizations integrate into Career and Technical Education programs and courses across the country. CTSOs extend teaching and learning through innovative programs, business and community partnerships and leadership experiences at the school, state and national levels. CTSOs are a powerful avenue for helping our nation address key challenges such as workforce development, student achievement, economic vitality and global competitiveness. CTSOs are authorized by the U.S. Congress in the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act. (Source: http://www.ctsos.org/ctsos/)
