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.


One of the most effective advocacy tools ACTE® has is you! Becoming an advocate is one of the most important actions you can take to secure the future of CTE. ACTE has developed a wide variety of tools to assist you in your advocacy activities, keep you informed and promote ongoing support for CTE. The tools here provide step-by-step directions and examples that will help you reach out to policymakers at the local, state and federal levels, as well as your community and the media. From your Members of Congress to your state and local policymakers, these individuals all make decisions that impact CTE. With your help, we can ensure the strength and future of CTE!
