FCCLA Prepares Students for the Ultimate Leadership Experience
Everyone is part of a family, and FCCLA is the only national Career and Technical Student Organization with family as its central focus. Since 1945, FCCLA members have been making a difference in their families, careers, and communities by addressing important personal, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education.
Today over 160,000 members in more than 5,300 chapters are active in a network of associations in 49 states, in addition to the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Chapter projects focus on a variety of youth concerns, including teen pregnancy, parenting, family relationships, substance abuse, peer pressure, environment, nutrition and fitness, teen violence, and career exploration. Involvement in FCCLA offers members the opportunity to expand their leadership potential and develop skills for life––planning, goal setting, problem-solving, decision making, and interpersonal communication––necessary in the home and workplace.
“The amount of valuable skills you gain from this organization is incredible. Whether it’s competing in a STAR Event, participating in a national program, or running for office; there is opportunity for every member to strive for their families, careers, and communities. FCCLA is truly the Ultimate Leadership Experience.”
