FCCLA

Students in the Child Development and Early Childhood Education Program have the additional opportunity to participate in FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America).  They also have the opportunity compete each year at district and state level competitions where they demonstrate and compare their skills to their peers attending Career and Technical Schools across the region and the state.

 Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America - FCCLA

Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) is a national Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) for students in Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) education in public and private school through grade 12. FCCLA offers intra-curricular resources and opportunities for students to pursue careers that support families. 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, more than 155,000 members from 4,253 chapters are active in a network of associations in 47 states, including Puerto Rico. The work of FCCLA helps students and teachers focus on a variety of youth concerns, including parenting, family relationships, substance abuse, peer pressure, sustainability, nutrition and fitness, teen violence, and career preparation in four specific Career Pathways. 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.
