Get Involved

Volunteering for ACTE is a great way to grow professionally, develop leadership skills, and build relationships with highly-engaged peers across the country. Opportunities abound for members to share their passion and expertise to make a positive impact on CTE. Are you ready to make a difference?

ACTE’s Volunteers make up a small army of volunteers who are involved in a variety of activities that support the implementation of ACTE’s mission and strategic plan. Volunteers who join our network receive invitations to serve in their areas of interest, participate in volunteer training opportunities, and attend exclusive networking events. Whether you’re a seasoned volunteer or new recruit, ACTE has opportunities for you to get more involved.
