Bring your
classroom to life

DECA enriches teaching and learning by providing cutting edge resources to integrate into classroom instruction.


This Month with DECA

DECA curates three big ideas each month for DECA chapters and advisors.

Career and Technical Education Month®

Career and Technical Education Month® is a great opportunity to advocate for your program. Let important decision makers know about the impact DECA makes in your community, school and lives of your members. CTE Month is also a time to participate in DECA’s Advocacy Campaign!

Promote Your Program: Recruit for Next Year

As counselors begin enrolling students in courses for the upcoming year, it’s a good time to enlist your current DECA members to help with recruitment strategies to build your program and DECA chapter. This is a prime promotional opportunity to explain the benefits of your courses and DECA to your counselors and prospective students.

Focus On The Victory

With association conferences happening in February and March, this is the time to focus on last-minute preparation for a competitive events victory.


Advisor Scholarships

DECA’s corporate partners offer professional development scholarships to advisors for use at DECA AMPED or other professional development conferences providing continuing education credit (CEU) in their field.


Role-plays. Performance Indicators. A Little Humor.

DECA has partnered with BusinessU to create a new Role-Play Prep Series! “DECA At The Bell” is an interactive, video-based series. It includes role-play prompts aligned to Performance Indicators.


Enhance Your Teaching

DECA’s Professional Learning Series offers conferences full of training, resources and networking for chapter advisors to enhance teaching, improve performance, integrate DECA into the classroom and fulfill certification requirements for continual professional development.
