Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America is a national student organization. It was developed to help youth assume their roles in society through Family & Consumer Science Education in areas of personal growth, family life, vocational preparation, and community involvement. Membership is open to both boys and girls in grades 7-12 who are taking or have taken a course in family and consumer science.
The O’Neill FCCLA Chapter has monthly meetings, normally the first Monday of each month. They also carry on various projects to aid the membership, the school, and the community. Some of these projects include: Homecoming project to develop and encourage school spirit, Frolics, FCCLA week observances, and attending district, state, and national conferences.
The competition component of FCCLA is STAR--Students TakingAction with Recognition. These events involve district, state, and in some cases, national competition.
All students are encouraged to join the organization. Questions should be addressed to any FCCLA chapter officer, member or advisor.
