As shelter-in-place orders persist throughout California, 900+ Silicon Valley high school students will still be pursuing their business dreams from home. This January, they need your help to compete at the virtual DECA Silicon Valley Career Development Conference.
DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management in high schools and colleges around the globe. (Learn more at deca.org/about.) California DECA currently serves 5,400 business-oriented high school students, ensuring their college- and career-readiness.
Every year, the Silicon Valley Career Development Conference (SVCDC) brings together students from 13 high schools to participate in DECA’s 50+ competitive events. Students spend 5 months meeting with their mentors and teammates, preparing to demonstrate their business proficiency at SVCDC. Every event is scored by volunteer judges.
California DECA would love to see you at virtual SVCDC in January.
