Policy and Advocacy
Social Media Advocacy
Sharing your thoughts with your Senators or Representative on a routine basis will keep CTE in the front of their minds. By using advocacy as a tool, we can influence Congress to continue and improve successful programs like Perkins, ESEA and the Workforce Investment Act.
Social media advocacy is one of the quickest and simplest ways to spread the CTE message to your Members of Congress. You can share about the benefits of your CTE program, activities your students are involved in, or your thoughts on key policy issues. You can even post pictures to illustrate your points.
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.
