This week I had the opportunity to visit Jefferson High School DECA! I got an insider perspective on some of the things that go on in their chapter. After speaking with the members, I quickly realized that the involvement was exceptional. Nearly every member seemed to have a place in their wide array of activities.
They have a brand new student run enterprise called DECA’fe. This gives the members opportunity for real world experience, operating a business, implementing accounting procedures, etc. Jefferson also offers a class called VEI. This gives the members a chance to start a company, create a business plan, and assign job roles to participating students.
Jefferson is also very involved in competition. After speaking with Jack Filali, VP of Competition, we get a better glimpse as to how they prepare their members for competition.
Jefferson DECA is definitely a chapter to look out for. With all the real world experience and competition preparation, they are surely providing great opportunities for their members. We can’t wait to see what Jefferson DECA has in store in the upcoming year!
