Hey Florida DECA!!
This month i’m going to be talking about being Community Oriented!
Community Oriented is something that is huge in DECA. Being Community Oriented is something when DECA members engage in their community to help someone/ something that is in the time of need, or just to advocate for DECA.
The month of February is CTE month (Career and Technical Education Month)
Career and Technical Education is something that helps students and young adults prepare for their future careers. DECA, falls directly under that category. So, this is a great month to go and advocate for DECA. Some ways to do this would be to go to your State Capital or to go to your city representatives. Now, CTE Month is not all it takes to be community oriented. Like I said before, go out and engage with your community. A huge example of being community oriented is when DECA put together the Disaster Relief Fund when people were in the time of need because of Hurricane Irma and Maria.
Now that you have a better understanding of what it is to be community oriented, I look forward to seeing everything you do!
See you later, Florida DECA !
