Oregon DECA Sponsors







Ways to Support

Oregon DECA relies on the support of business volunteers each day who serve and become role-models to future leaders. There are many ways you can get involved. Here are some of the areas where we need help:

Become a Sponsor

Sponsors provide scholarships, people support, and both in-kind and monetary support.

Chapter Fundraising

Oregon DECA's high school chapters’ finance most of their activities through fundraisers. Most chapters use the fundraising activity as a learning experience, organizing the students into teams, selecting products or services, identifying responsibility, and reporting on results. Chapters are continuously searching for new and innovative fundraising programs. Oregon DECA is a great market for businesses that seek to offer fundraising programs in high schools. Exhibit at or become a sponsor of the Oregon DECA State Career Development Conference to gain access to these audiences.

College Recruitment

Oregon's DECA members are highly motivated, results oriented students with strong academic credentials; this is the type of student that colleges and post-secondary institutions want. Many colleges have found DECA to be a great recruiting resource. A recent study found that 86% of graduating DECA members plan on attending college. Typical DECA members have the work experience and community services as part of their DECA experience. Exhibit at the College & Career Fair or become a sponsor of the Oregon DECA State Career Development Conference to gain access to students from across the date.

School-Based Enterprises

School-based enterprises (SBEs) are effective tools that are used to help prepare students for the transition from school to work. For many students, these school stores provide the first work experience; for others, they provide an opportunity to build management, supervision and leadership skills. While some in the education community have only recently discovered the value of school-based enterprises, marketing educators and DECA advisors have used them as a powerful teaching tool for more than four decades.

Scholarships

Scholarships are often times a great motivator for a student to decide to attend college. DECA's scholarship program provides about a quarter of a million dollars each year. More than 50 corporations provide scholarships through the DECA Scholarship Program. DECA, Inc. administers the program based on guidelines set by the donor and freeing the company from any potential compensation issues.

Serve on a Committee

You may serve on one of Oregon DECA's many committees. Committee members help plan events, offer ideas for improvement and pool their resources with other members to make DECA better than ever.

Volunteer as a Conference Judge

Business Judges are needed for district, state and international career development conferences. This is a great way to get involved and make a "difference" working with our students.
