TASSP-Sponsored Student Associations
TASSP awards two $1,000 scholarships to be used for leadership training to Texas Association of Student Councils member councils which documents an exceptional partnership with their principals in meeting school accountability measures and the demands of unfunded mandates.
TAFE encourages students to learn about careers in education and assists them in exploring the teaching profession while promoting character, service and leadership skills necessary for becoming effective educators.
The Texas Association of Future Educators or TAFE (pronounced "taffy") is a co-curricular statewide non-profit (501 c3) student organization created to allow young men and women an opportunity to explore the teaching profession. The organization was created in 1984 to provide the best and brightest high school and middle school students in Texas with the necessary knowledge to make informed decisions about pursuing careers in education.
TAFE is sponsored by the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals and is governed by a board of directors comprised of teachers, students and principals.
TAFE as a CTSO
TAFE is one of the nine Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) recognized by the Texas Education Agency. TAFE is proud to be the newest CTSO recognized in Texas. This recognition has not been granted to a student organization in Texas in the past 20 years!
TAFE proudly supports the work of the Educators Rising and each year a delegation of TAFE's top student leaders attend the National Conference to represent the lone star state.
