Guam Association for Career and Technical Education
Welcome to the Guam ACTE Page. ACTE is committed to providing professional development, leadership, and legislative advocacy to the highest degree. We are proud to serve the Guam, CNMI, Palau, and American Samoa CTE Communities.
A group of local, dedicated CTE professionals helped form the new GUAM ACTE (est. 2015), an affiliated chapter of the National ACTE (see below). This organization’s focus is on CTE, aiming to raise awareness, promote advocacy, foster local research agenda, provide technical assistance, engage in networking activities and assist in policy development, and be a resource clearinghouse. All Directors, Officers and members are committed to high professional standards among membership; to promote regional concept through cooperation among regional island nations and affiliates; to provide a direct vehicle for input into the National ACTE; and to engage in all things necessary or proper in connection with or incidental to the foregoing purpose.
The Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) is the nation’s largest not-for-profit association committed to the advancement of education that prepares youth and adults for successful careers. ACTE represents the community of CTE professionals, including educators, administrators, researchers, school counselors, guidance and career development professionals and others at all levels of education. ACTE is committed to excellence in providing advocacy, public awareness and access to resources, professional development and leadership opportunities.
We encourage you to join ACTE at the state and National Level. If you are having trouble with membership please call 703-683-3111.
