CTE Advisory Committee

The Prince William County Public Schools Career and Technical Education Advisory Committee, formerly the Vocational Education Foundation, was formed by the community to provide opportunities and practical experience in building trades for high school students.  Recently their focus has been expanded to include students interested in additional careers that provide necessary and continuing services to the community.
