Do you have time to make a difference in a young person’s life? On April 28th, over 19,000 high school students will be in Anaheim, CA at DECA’s International Career Development Conference preparing themselves for college and careers. These high-achieving, marketing-minded students will be participating in DECA’s Competitive Events Program in which they will present projects and engage in business simulations. DECA students will:
- Share a promotional strategy for a case study they received only 10 minutes ago
- Unveil a comprehensive generational marketing strategy for a local business
- Tell you about their real business (yes, real) and their marketing plan
DECA offers over 50 different competitive events for students to participate and judges to evaluate across the subject areas of Business, Marketing, Finance, Hospitality, and Entrepreneurship. In order for these dedicated students to fulfill their year-long goal of competing, we need over 300 marketing professionals to judge and evaluate their presentations. All executives, directors, managers, supervisors, trainers, associates, and entrepreneurs are encouraged to participate. No prior DECA experience is required.
Your time and experience is critical to the "real world" learning experience DECA provides to these driven young people. Professionals, like you, provide them with industry validated experience and motivation to move forward on their college or career paths. Will you take part in this truly life changing volunteer experience?
The following volunteer opportunities are available:
Friday, April 28
- 7:30am- 6:00pm

Sample video presentations, past event scenarios and answers to frequently asked questions can be found at the site as well. Confirmation emails and detailed instructions will be sent to all volunteer judges prior to the conference. All volunteers will receive comprehensive training, a gift of appreciation and a certificate to help document community service hours. Parking and meals will be provided.
