“We are experiencing a historical transformation in the workforce system.” – Ed Castille, Director AIDT
Work as we know it is changing.
In 2017, the Institute Of The Future estimated that around 85% of the jobs that today’s learners will be doing in 2030 haven’t been invented yet. Because of this ever-evolving work system, students are graduating high school without the employability skills required for the 21st century job market.
That means traditional education as it stands will not properly prepare students for the jobs in demand post-graduation. With a statewide transformation in work, we need a statewide transformation in training.
Our vision is for every high school student in Oregon, no matter their economic status or chosen career path, graduates with the leadership, academic, and career skills they need to succeed.
We believe companies should be confident in the rising workforce, so much so that Oregon becomes a high demand location to headquarter business.
Our hope is that employers can then provide on-the-job training that trains employees beyond the basics propelling Oregon's workforce to be the best in the nation.

After their term of service, state officer alumni continue to stay engaged with CTSOs as volunteers and supporters of CTSO programs.
According to the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE), “CTSOs play an important part in preparing young people to become productive citizens and to assume roles of leadership in their communities. These organizations provide a unique program of career and leadership development, motivation, and recognition for secondary and post-secondary students.”
CTSOs have been proven to be extremely valuable and effective instructional tools. Each CTSO reinforces workplace basics:
The Oregon CTE Council provides Oregon's teachers opportunities for professional development. These programs are designed to offer solutions that are confronting the students, teachers, and industries we serve. Programs include the Oregon Advisor Conference and exclusive resources for educators.
