Career & Technical Student Organizations (CTSO)
CTSO stands for Career and Technical Student Organizations. These student organizations allow
students work together at the local, state, and/or national level, providing experiences in
leadership, teamwork, self-confidence, and character development through CTE programs.
CTSOs are not stand-alone after-school clubs, they are out-of-school extensions of CTE
classroom experiences. CTSOs are comprised of not-for-profit organizations specifically
authorized by the U.S. Congress in the Perkins Act.
