In Collegiate DECA, serving in the community is more than giving your time. It is also showcasing who you are and what you can do. Many people do not realize this, but the best job offers comes from being involved in the community. Business professionals are constantly watching who they want to hire, and the best way to be out in the view isn’t just at networking events or job fairs but getting involved in community events.

“Give before you can receive”
The community is always looking for young students who can help grow the community. The majority of UNLV DECA’s community projects are event-based, and at these events, members are challenged with knowing how to:

- Stay Focused
- Make things happen
Many members who serve the community through Collegiate DECA have received internship and job offers. Just spending three to four hours serving and doing the best you can to make an event successful is worth the opportunity to build your professional network.
