It’s one of our favorite times of the year… Teacher Appreciation Week!

From May 2-6, 2022, join us in celebrating the 5,300 DECA advisors who have worked to prepare emerging leaders and entrepreneurs during the 2021-2022 academic year.

Whether it’s helping members prepare for college, obtain essential knowledge and skills for a career, participate in DECA activities or successfully travel to educational conferences, DECA advisors make a lifelong impact with their students.

DECA advisors have an instrumental influence when preparing students for college and career success. Because of our DECA advisors, our members indicate the tremendous impact DECA makes on them each year.
