Oregon CTE Student Leadership Foundation Mission is to expand resources to support Career and Technical Student Organizations in providing opportunities for all Oregon students to develop leadership, academic and career skills. In July of 1974, the Student Leadership Center was established to coordinate statewide activities of approved CTSOs. 

From 1974 until 2011, the Student Leadership Development Center collaboratively managed Oregon’s six CTSOs. In 2011, the name and mission of the Student Leadership Development Center was changed to the Oregon CTE Student Leadership Foundation As of 2011, all seven Oregon CTSOs are managed individually by their respective association leadership bodies in coordination with the Oregon Department of Education and with support of the Oregon CTE Student Leadership Foundation.
