Icing on the Cake: Integrating DECA Allison Bentley Cedar Shoals High School
DECA’s mission DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.
Guiding Principles Our guiding principles explain how we fulfill our mission by addressing what we do and the outcomes we expect.

Global Entrepreneurship Week November 14-20, Why organize a Global Entrepreneurship Week/USA activity? – We need people and organizations to help create an environment that allows entrepreneurial behavior to flourish. It is important that young people believe in themselves and strive to make their ideas happen, and they deserve encouragement and support. The drive to nurture enterprising behavior needs business, education, government, voluntary organizations and the media to work together—no single sector or organization working in isolation can create opportunities on this ambitious scale. Global Entrepreneurship Week is a great opportunity to showcase what thousands of organizations already do to help foster a culture that embraces innovation, imagination and creativity.
