Choosing to become a member of FCCLA is one of the greatest choices a student could make as they could reap much benefit from joining. The rewarding feeling of bettering oneself as well as their student body, community, and even home life is ever present when apart of FCCLA. Along with this, students also get the chance to connect with other members all around their state as well nation, forging life long frienships and bonds with these students. Also, FCCLA exposes kids to real life situations and gives them valuable experience that can be taken into the real world. FCCLA is, in fact, just as it states- the ultmiate leadership expericence.
Students within High School as well as Junior High have the opportunity to be apart of FCCLA as long as they have taken or are apart of a Family and Consumer Sciences class (FCS).
