Program Description

  • Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America is the only student organization that focuses on the family.  Students must have taken or be enrolled in a FACS class sometime in their middle or high school career to be a member.

    The misson of FCCLA 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 member, members develop skills for life through character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal communication, practical knowledge, and career preparation.  

    FCCLA is the "ultimate leadership experience!"
