ABOUT US

Arizona DECA - a Career and Technical Student Organization that engages and equips students in high schools and colleges throughout the state - was chartered by the Arizona Department of Education in 1961 as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.

 LEARN MORE 

Throughout Arizona DECA's 62-year history, tens of thousands of students have passed through the program on their journey to become the next generation of business leaders. Giving students the resources and tools they need to succeed, a legion of teachers and administrators dedicate their passion for education to prepare emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management.

Because of DECA, students are able to become college and career-ready faster than their peers. Nearly 88% of DECA members report that their personal DECA experience connected school to the real world and 95% of DECA members report that they gained more skills in public speaking and problem solving. Many of our professional conferences attract prestigious companies and educational institutions like Marriott International and Arizona State University's W.P. Carey School of Business, who attend to recruit simply because DECA students are a highly-motivated group of rising stars looking to own their future.
