DECA’s Advisor Mentoring Network is a formal year-long program that connects new DECA advisors to experienced DECA advisors who serve as their mentors. The journey of serving as a chapter advisor can be made easier by joining our mentoring network. DECA advisors with three or less years of experience are paired with an amazing experienced chapter advisor who can help answer all their DECA related questions.
The benefits of the DECA Advisor Mentor Network include:
- Providing new advisors with access to a network and support system to facilitate professional and career development within DECA
- Providing an opportunity for new advisors to engage in meaningful DECA professional development activities
- Linking new advisors with experienced advisors to facilitate local “knowledge sharing” and to answer association-specific questions
- Continuity of support
The Advisor Mentoring Network Playbook serves as a guide for kicking off the mentorship relationship, setting expectations and outcomes, developing an individualized mentoring plan and facilitating monthly conversations.
