Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is a nonprofit national career and technical student organization for young men and women in Human Services/Education and Training/Arts, A/V Technology, and Communications Career Clusters in public and private school through grade 12. Everyone is part of a family, and FCCLA is the only national Career and Technical Student Organization with the family as its central focus. 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 over 200,000 members in nearly 6,500 chapters are active in a network of associations in 50 states, including the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Chapter projects focus on a variety of youth concerns, including teen pregnancy, parenting, family relationships, substance abuse, peer pressure, environment, nutrition and fitness, teen violence, and career exploration. 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.

A letter will be sent to parents at the beginning of the school year explaining the importance of students enrolled in Human Services and Psychology  classes  joining FCCLA. I am also encouraging Second Semester students enrolled in my Human Services and Psychology  classes to join at the beginning of the school year,  in order to particpate in FCCLA activities throughout the entire year. Extra Credit points will be given to affiliated students for participating in FCCLA activities.
