FCCLA Students AM FCCLA Students PM

Coldwater,  Michigan – Members of the Branch Area Careers Center of Family, Career and Community  Leaders of America (FCCLA)  will join more than 200,000 members in celebrating  National  FCCLA Week  February  12-16, 2018. This year’s theme is “Level Up  With  FCCA”  in  recognition  of  the many  things  FCCLA  students  and  advisers represent – both as individuals  and as members of their chapters, state associations and the national FCCLA organization – in their families, schools and communities. During National  FCCLA  Week,  members  plan  and  carry  out  activities  to address teen  and societal concerns and show how the Early Education and Education Academy Programs can help them achieve the Ultimate Leadership Experience.

FCCLA members were busy during the week with a variety of activities including FCCLA  Promo Day, Careers in Action, Say Thanks,  and  Unite in Red.  Students  will continue  to support  many community  service  projects  for the remainder  of the school year as well as prepare for the FCCLA State Leadership Conference being held on March 21-23,2018 in Midland, Michigan.

Family, Career and Community  Leaders of America (FCCLA), is a dynamic and effective national student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important personal, family, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer  Sciences  education.  FCCLA has  over  200,000  members  and  over  5,500 chapters from 49 state associations, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The organization has involved more than ten million youth since its founding in 1945.

FCCLA: The  Ultimate Leadership  Experience is  unique among youth organizations because its programs are planned and run by members. It is the only career and technical in-school student organization with the family as its central focus. Participation in national programs and chapter activities helps members become strong leaders in their families, careers, and communities.
