Many instructors provide career and technical students with countless hours of volunteer service that contribute to the development of skills and attributes needed to participate in an ever-growing technological world. The primary purposes of Career and Technical Student Organizations are to (1) develop skills in students, and (2) foster the technical abilities and leadership qualities needed to produce highly qualified, reliable, and marketable individuals. Moreover, these instructors aid in developing career skills as well as providing leadership training — another focal point of Career and Technical Student Organizations. This presentation will focuses on the understanding of what and why factors that leads to non-participations of Instructors in (CTSO's) and how their participation could revolutionize the education processes in career and technical education.

I was born and raised in the Hawaiian Island. I have spent most of my adult life in education, either as a student or a teacher. I have been a professor of education at Valdosta State University for a few years now and have devoted my life to the educational processes and philosophies. I'm divorce and have three children which I am raising on my own. My research interests are from contextual teaching and learning to participation factors of teachers in vocational student organizations.
