Policy and Advocacy

CTE Support Fund

The Career and Technical Education Support Fund promotes the advancement of CTE through a broad array of activities, including developing research-based materials focusing on the value of CTE; building and sustaining a national coalition of CTE leaders, administrators, organizations and businesses that support CTE awareness; and organizing public awareness campaigns to support CTE. These efforts are critical to supporting and advancing the cause of CTE and donations to this purpose are tax-deductible. Your contributions to the CTE Support Fund enable ACTE to carry out vital work on your behalf.

Why Advocate?

CTE professionals are CTE experts, and we need you to join in our work to advocate for CTE. Your local advocacy efforts are a key part of continuing the bipartisan support CTE receives in Congress.

As we head into a reauthorization of the Perkins CTE Act, this "back home" advocacy is especially vital to ensuring your voice is heard on Capitol Hill. Building a relationship with your Members of Congress or their staff will set you up as an expert on CTE and will have policymakers asking for your input when drafting legislation that will impact your classroom.

In addition to the items here on the CTE Action Center, you can find more tips on other advocacy actions you can take in our Advocacy Toolkit.
