Why You Should Join FCCLA

FCCLA stands for the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. It is an organization that involves so many different things.  It is easy for everyone to find something to love about FCCLA. Most importantly, FCCLA is a family. FCCLA’s mission is to promote personal growth and leadership development through Family and Consumer Sciences education. Focusing on the multiple roles of family member, wage earner and community leader, members develop skills for life through character development; creative and critical thinking; interpersonal communications; practical knowledge; and career preparation.

I fell in love with FCCLA during my freshman year after joining just because I wanted something to do. It has been something that has completely changed my life in ways that I would have never expected, and taught me many important, useful skills. Before FCCLA, I was not someone that would put myself out there. I definitely was not a leader, and I had no idea what to do with my life. FCCLA has taught me purpose and leadership--two things that I value greatly. Without FCCLA, I wouldn’t be the person that I am today. I am now a confident leader with skills that will get me through important things in my life. FCCLA helped me break out of my shell and become a better version of myself, and it can do the same for you.

FCCLA is a great way to promote your own personal growth. Whether it is becoming more involved in your community or expanding your leadership skills, FCCLA can help you with it. With the many options that FCCLA provides, you can pick something that you love and do something with it. FCCLA not only helps the students that are involved, but it also helps schools. It helps to carry out the school’s purpose of preparing employable citizens, and also helps to gain community support. FCCLA is a positive, goal-oriented organization that provides many great opportunities for everyone involved. FCCLA is truly the ultimate leadership experience, and this is why you should join the amazing organization that is FCCLA.
