Learn About the Double the Investment Campaign
Read to learn more about the Double the Investment campaign.
The CTE community is embarking on a campaign to double the federal investment in Career Technical Education (CTE), and we need your help!
We’re asking employers to sign on to support the campaign to double the federal investment in CTE. This is a shared campaign; we invite everyone to join the effort! The signatures collected from employers will be a critical component to building visibility and support for CTE with members of Congress.
CTE allows learners to explore a range of opportunities for their future and set a path for lifelong career success and we know that it delivers results for learners, employers and America. Expanding funding for CTE programs will create a brighter future for our community and the entire country.
Help us get to 10,000 signatures by July to show how important it is to double the federal investment in CTE to prepare learners for more career options, help close the skills gap and build the workforce of tomorrow.
CTE provides middle school, high school, postsecondary and adult learners with the knowledge and skills they need to be prepared for successful careers. Learners enrolled in CTE programs progress along a pathway of increasingly specific academic and technical courses. They often have the opportunity to participate in internships, engage with employers and apply what they are learning through hands-on projects.
