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 Educators in Action 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 regular 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.

what we do


Using ACTE’s resources, research and talking points, we trumpet the value of CTE to improve and modernize the public’s outdated perceptions of our field. Within our networks, we also promote the importance of developing professionally and the opportunities educators have to grow through associations such as ACTE.


We contribute content for ACTE’s publications and professional development offerings. We share our stories, best practices, and opinions about issues impacting CTE by writing for the Educators in Action Blog. View the Educators in Action calendar and contact Dominique Frascoia to submit your blog post. We also submit article proposals for Techniques magazine and submit session proposals for ACTE’s state, region and national conferences. We host regular Virtual CTE Discussions to connect with peers from across the country on important topics in CTE and share ideas.Upcoming Virtual Discussions include:

For more information to join these important discussions, please contact Megan Kmiotek, ACTE’s Director of Leadership and Awards.


We use ACTE’s resources and advocacy toolkit to develop relationships with our policymakers and the media to communicate the importance of funding for CTE programs. We also participate in advocacy training sessions such as those provided at ACTE’s National Policy Seminar and share the tools and skills we have with our peers to maximize our collective impact.


We take opportunities to serve in formal ACTE leadership roles by getting involved in committees, task forces, advisory groups, and by running for positions on the Board of Directors. There’s also independent initiatives endorsed by ACTE, such as planning school visits and designing celebration activities for CTE Month. We elevate the work of our peers by nominating them for awards and by using the resources and opportunities within ACTE to mentor our newer CTE teachers and colleagues.
