FCCLA, short for Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, is a cocurricular organization that aims to help youth in public and private schools with family bonds, careers, and participation in the community. The organization was once known as the Future Homemakers of America (FHA).

Contributions[edit]

Members of the FCCLA routinely contribute to the surrounding community by raising money for community programs like homeless aid and youth abuse prevention.[1]

Structure[edit]

FCCLA is governed by a board of directors consisting of business and industry, Family and Consumer Sciences, and youth representatives. The organization annually elects 10 students to serve on the National Executive Council. The National Director serves as the Chief Administrative Officer.

State Associations elect state officers and have state advisors.
