Developing emerging leaders is the core of the DECA experience. The DECA Emerging Leader Series is our take on providing a comprehensive leadership program for our members. Its goal is to empower DECA members to provide effective leadership through goal setting, consensus building and project implementation.

Aligned with 21st Century Skills in the areas of critical thinking and problem solving, communication and collaboration, and creativity and innovation, DECA’s Emerging Leader Series prepares DECA members to be effective leaders in college and careers. Each of these academies are available at the DECA International Career Development Conference, and Elevate and Empower are also offered at the DECA Emerging Leader Series.
