Who is eligible to be a member of FCCLA?

Any student who has taken a course in Family and Consumer Sciences, or as determined by the state department of education, middle school through grade 12 is eligible for active membership in an organized chapter within their school. Once the state and national dues are paid, the student will be an official affiliated member. Teachers can join FCCLA, too! Teachers certified to teach Family and Consumer Sciences Education, or as determined by the state department of education, can serve as the FCCLA chapter adviser.

Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America provides a wealth of benefits for your students, Family and Consumer Sciences program, school, community, and your own professional development. New advisers find that FCCLA offers a broad spectrum of program choices. The word “choices” is the key to survival and success.

Remember: you don’t have to do it all! FCCLA offers a variety of national programs and events to help increase the effectiveness of your Family and Consumer Sciences program and motivates students. During your chapter’s first years, guide members toward the programs that seem to best serve your local community needs. As members gain experience and build a tradition of chapter success, they will be ready to branch out into additional programs and events.
