Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month

What is CTE? Career and technical education is education that prepares students for high-wage, high-demand careers. CTE covers many fields, including health care, information technology, manufacturing, hospitality and management. FBLA is one of the four main CTSOs in North Carolina. FBLA allows students to compete in many career focused competitions to “get their feet wet” in interests they may have. If you forgot to participate in FBLA Week, no worries. There are more ways to stay involved this month. You can host school visits or invite non-members to meetings to grow the organization. You can  reach out to the media and politicians to advise them on the benefits of CTE organizations like FBLA. Your social media posts also help to raise awareness for CTE. Lastly, you can host school-wide service projects to give back to your community. Whatever you decide to do can and will impact your school and community on a large scale. Make sure to tag @nc_ _FBLA in your social media posts to receive the recognition that you deserve during this month. Happy CTE Month!
