FCCLA: It’s not your Momma’s FHA!

Some of you may hear your Mom or Grandma talking about the “good ol’ days” of Future Homemakers of America (FHA). Well, it’s still around, sort of. Now it’s in the form of Family, Career, and Community Leaders or America, or FCCLA. The focus is still on the family, but the new name explains that we aren’t just homemakers, we are all about leadership in all facets of life.
In FCCLA we focus on leadership activities, develop leadership skills, and learn how to apply them to our families, careers and community. There are opportunities for individual self-directed projects, event leadership, community service leadership, international exchange, legislative shadowing, state and national conference delegations, competitive event participation and local, regional, state and national leadership.
Just so you know guys, this is NOT an all girls’ club! Guys are more than welcome to join. In fact, more guys elevate to state and national leadership positions proportionally than girls. In order to join FCCLA, all you need to do is be enrolled in a FACS course (currently or in the past) and then pay your dues.
There are so many great activities and experiences, who wouldn’t want to join?

It’s the Ultimate Leadership Experience!

J.O., B.F.,T.S., S.H.
