  • Who We Are
    We are the state chapter of a national organization for students in grades 6-12 who are interested in careers in education, human service, personal/family finance, housing/interior design, nutrition/wellness, textiles/apparel, and consumer issues.
  • What We Do
    Competitive events give you the chance to stretch your skills, showcase accomplishments, and make positive changes in your families, careers, and communities ... oh yeah, and the events are a ton of fun!
  • Our Events
    FCCLA provides an opportunity to learn and lead while competing for chapter, state, and national recognition. You also have the opportunity to participate in activities that develop skills for life — planning, goal setting, problem solving, decision making, and communicating — necessary in the home and workplace.
  • Advisers
    An FCCLA adviser is a unique individual. Being an adviser is one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences you can have and being an effective adviser is one of the key factors to a successful chapter.
  • Sponsors
    Through the financial and professional support of a wide variety of organizations, associations, universities, and corporations, FCCLA is able to continue its tradition of providing personal growth and leadership opportunities to youth. Thanks to all of our partners and sponsors for your continued support!
  • Students
    Become a leader and address important personal, family, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences Education. FCCLA is the only career and technical student organization with family as its central focus.
