This study examined the availability and use of community resources in teaching Business Studies in secondary schools in Ruiru District Kiambu County Kenya. A descriptive research method was adopted. A sample of 10 principals, 10 Business Studies teachers and 100 students was drawn from a target population of 1222 respondents. Data was collected using interview schedule for Principals and questionnaires were used to collect data from teachers and students. Information was collected from twenty two secondary schools in Kiambu District. Descriptive statistics in form of percentages, frequencies, tables and ranks were used to analyse data. Major finding of this study were that community resources were not regularly used in Kenyan secondary schools due to constraints of time, finance etc. The study also revealed that the respondents were conversant with community resources in their District. From the findings teachers should try as much as possible to use community resources in teaching Business Studies. This will improve the quality of instruction in schools and ensure student active involvement in life-like learning activities.en_US
