Career and Technical Student Organizations

 
Students enrolled in CTE courses are encouraged to join and participate in related Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO).  Career and Technical Student Organizations are an integral part of the Career & Technical Education program in Waco ISD.

These organizations provide an opportunity for students to participate in a variety of activities, community service projects and local, state and national competitive events, which enhance the CTE instructional programs. Through these youth leadership organizations, students have the opportunity to develop leadership and communication skills.
