FCCLA makes a difference
Lake Park Audubon members of the Minnesota Association of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) will join more than 200,000 members in celebrating National FCCLA Week Feb. 7-13. This year's theme is "FCCLA...To Be Continued."
During National FCCLA Week, members plan and carry out activities to address teen and societal concerns and show how Family and Consumer Sciences education can help them achieve the ultimate leadership experience.
Over 75 members are in the process of completing projects that they have been working on throughout the school year. Some of more visible projects include service to the Children's Miracle Network, The American Diabetes Association, Teen Traffic Safety, Cyber Bullying Prevention, Applied Technology, Lakes Area Humane Society, and Nutrition Lessons for Kindergarten students.
Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is a dynamic and effective national student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important personal, family, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education.
FCCLA has over 200,000 members and over 6,500 chapters from 50 state associations, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The organization has involved more than ten million youth since its founding in 1945. The LPA Chapter was established in 1961 and is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
FCCLA: The Ultimate Leadership Experience is unique among youth organizations because its programs are planned and run by members. It is the only career and technical in-school student organization with the family as its central focus. Participation in national programs and chapter activities helps members become strong leaders in their families, careers, and communities.
