Career and Technical Education Month® is here! Each year during February, DECA and other Career and Student Organizations (CTSOs) take the time to celebrate all the good that comes from Career and Technical Education (CTE). There are many ways to celebrate CTE Month, but the most popular way is by participating in advocacy efforts. Reach out to local business owners, talk to your school administration and engage with policymakers to advocate for all that CTE is doing in your life and the impact it is making on thousands of other students’ lives.
To help you with your advocacy efforts, the Executive Officer Team created a quick “how-to guide” for advocacy! This guide shows you the most current DECA information and breaks it down so that it easy to understand and easy to share while advocating.
The Executive Officer Team knows how much work goes into preparing for DECA's advocacy visits, so we hope this guide will assist your efforts!
Complete three school outreach activities, three public policymaker outreach activities and three community outreach activities during February and your chapter can earn recognition through DECA’s Advocacy Campaign! Visit decadirect.org/advocacy for more ideas and resources to get started!
