FCCLA offers programs, contests, scholarships, and opportunities for members to develop real world skills, become college- and career-ready, and make a difference in families, careers, and communities.
FCCLA has made a concentrated effort to illustrate the connection of FCCLA and Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) to career pathways and hosted a focus group to assist in this process. A survey of business and industry stakeholders found that FCCLA most directly supports Career Pathways in Human Services, Hospitality and Tourism, Education and Training, and Visual Arts and Design.
FCCLA National Programs and Competitive Events support CTE students’ development of knowledge and skills, enhancing the classroom experience and career pathway initiatives. FCCLA is integrated into FCS and is intra-curricular, exposing students to work-based learning, business and industry networks, and industry-recognized certifications.
FCCLA members explore career opportunities and build real world skills by developing projects, engaging and participating in events, and competing regionally and nationally for scholarships and awards. Through participation in FCCLA and exploration of FCCLA’s 4 Career Pathways, members acquire many skills to be college and career ready, including academic knowledge, technical expertise, and a set of general, cross-cutting abilities called “employability skills.”
In addition, through FCS education, FCCLA members learn real word skills that are transferable to any career pathway they choose, these real world skills include:
