Advance CTE is a national nonprofit organization that represents state leaders responsible for secondary, postsecondary and adult career and technical education (CTE) across the country. Like SkillsUSA, Advance CTE is always looking for opportunities to advocate on behalf of career and technical education students, and its new “I Support CTE” campaign does exactly that.
The year-long campaign, launched in February, aims to collect signatures from employers to urge Congress to double the federal investment in CTE programs. Advance CTE is pursuing sign-ons from small businesses to large corporations representing every state and every industry. It’s also looking for stories of what successful CTE programs look like in your state, stories that reflect why increasing the investment in CTE programs is important.
