Our Mission:

Ohio ACTE is Ohio’s only organization dedicated to serving all career-technical and adult educators, including instructors, administrators, adult education staff, support staff, school board members, and others.  Our collective goal is to inspire, educate, and empower career-tech students with knowledge and skills they need to succeed after graduation. 

Ohio is facing a skills and talent shortage, and Ohio ACTE member educators address this challenge by working with business and industry professionals to prepare tomorrow’s workforce with the attributes employers need to thrive.   

Ohio’s career-tech educators serve high school students and adults across Ohio.   There are more than 5,000 Ohio ACTE members, serving approximately 125,000 students in Ohio. 

Our Goals:

  • Increase the positive perception of career-technical and adult education with parents, students, and the public.
  • Grow career-tech programs to meet the career calling of our students and the demands of Ohio’s workforce.
  • Serve all students through innovative instruction and creative work-based learning opportunities.

Ohio ACTE Programs & Initiatives

Our programs range from an intensive 12-month leadership program, The Byrl R. Shoemaker Leadership Institute, to virtual and in-person events, with our flagship event the Ohio ACTE Annual Innovation & Impact Conference held every July in Columbus.

Initiatives include our annual student scholarship, promoting post-secondary education and advocacy efforts with our state leaders and legislators to insure career-tech continues to offer students exceptional education opportunities.

Join Us and Support the Cause

Help secure the future and growth of career-technical education.   If you believe in the power of innovative and creative education to serve students and build Ohio’s workforce, we hope you become one of our valued supporters.  Please choose from one of the following sponsorship packages that best fits the goals of your organization or customize your own sponsorship package.
