The Student North Carolina Association of Educators is a pre-professional organization for undergraduate and graduate students interested in a career in education.  SNCAE is a division of the larger North Carolina Association of Educators, the leading professional organization for educators in North Carolina, representing over 65,000 members of the National Education Association, the largest education association in the United States.

SNCAE’s goal is to prepare college students for their futures as educators.  Through NCAE, workshops are offered free of charge in areas such as No Child Left Behind, PRAXIS preparation, Diversity in the Classroom, and Classroom Management for the New Teacher.  Local chapters provide support with job interviewing skills, resume writing, student teaching, and advice for the first year teaching.

A spring convention is held each year at which SNCAE members can attend professional workshops, vote on an executive board for the upcoming year, and network with other future educators.

If you are a future educator in the state of North Carolina, join your professional organization, SNCAE, and make a difference with today’s youth!
