Who does FCCLA benefit?

An active FCCLA chapter offers a range of benefits for the school, community, the Family and Consumer Sciences program, the adviser, and students. FCCLA offers a ready-to-use framework for implementing cooperative learning strategies, interdisciplinary teaching, volunteerism, and school-to-career transitions options. FCCLA will help you publicize the Family and Consumer Sciences program to parents, administrators, and the community. It will attract more students and expand your professional experience and fulfillment. FCCLA allows students to develop skills and learn to balance school, work, and family responsibilities. It also helps students gain recognition for accomplishments, and teaches them to identify concerns, learn how to make decisions, and carry out activities.
