In February, the CTE community launched a campaign to double the federal investment in CTE! This is a shared campaign and we invite everyone to join us in asking employers to sign onto a statement that supports doubling the investment in CTE. The signatures collected from employers will be a critical component to building visibility and support for CTE with members of Congress. This new bi-monthly blog series will keep you updated on the campaign and provide you with Tweets and resources to spread the word about the campaign!
Are you willing to ask employers to sign on to doubling the federal investment in CTE? Our goal is to secure 10,000 employer signatures by July and we need your help! Use the featured resource, blog, and Tweet below to spread the word about the campaign and encourage employers to sign on.
FEATURED RESOURCE:Check out the double the investment campaign’s promotional toolkit here for off-the-shelf materials you can use to share the campaign with employers, including sample Tweets, email language and talking points. Find additional resources, including a one-pager, PowerPoint, and CTE graphics on the share page.
