Students enrolled in the Early Childhood Education Program have the unique opportunity to be a part of a CTSO or Career and Technical Student Organization. The Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) is regarded as an integral part of career and technical education. CTSOs play an important part in preparing young people to become productive citizens and then assume roles of leadership in their communities. These organizations provide a unique program of career and leadership development, motivation, and recognition for secondary and post-secondary students enrolled in career and technical education programs. Educators have found that the CTSO is a powerful instructional tool that works best when it is integrated into the career and technical education curriculum. Career and Technical Education instructors provide organized curriculum-oriented activities that help students gain career, leadership, and personal skills that maximize employability and the ability to become productive citizens in the workforce, home, and community.
