FCCLA is a nonprofit national career and technical education student organization for young men and women in family and consumer sciences education in public and private schools 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 227,000 members in 7,100 chapters are active in a network of associations in 50 states as well as in the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

FCCLA members will strengthen skills, forge friendships, and make a positive difference in today’s world by participating in Competitive Events, serving in leadership positions, attending national conferences, networking with youth leaders, and attaining essential college- and career-ready skills. FCCLA prepares members for careers through its four Career Pathways: Human Services, Hospitality and Tourism, Education and Training, and Visual Arts and Design.

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.
