Caddo Career & Technology Center DECA kicked off DECA Week with a community service
project by volunteering at the Red River Revel and assisting at the Pet Education Project Tent. DECA members helped elementary students to color and draw for prizes.

To provide education and leadership development for students to carry into their business and personal lives after graduation.


DECA chapters attract students who are interested in preparing for entrepreneurial, marketing, or management careers.
