The Ultimate Leadership Experience
Florida FCCLA serves as the main state association for the national CTSO Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA). Serving more than 16,000 members statewide, our association has left an impact on students’ life by allowing them to discover their inner leaders.
Our mission is to promote personal growth and leadership development through family and consumer science education. By focusing on the multiple roles of family members, wage earners, and community leaders, members develop skills for life through character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal communication, practical knowledge, and career preparation.
The State Association bylaws guide the Board of Directors in the conduction of their work.
The State Association Policies and Procedures guide the State Executive Council and other involved parties in the conduction of their work.
“We are the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America
We face the future with warm courage and high hope
For we have the clear consciousness of seeking old and precious values
For we are the builders of homes, homes for America’s future
Homes where living will be the expression of everything that is go and fair,
Homes where truth, and love, and security and faith will be realities, not dreams.
We are the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America
We face the future with warm courage and high hope.”
FCCLA is supported by student membership dues in addition to funds raised from individuals, corporations, foundations, and federal grants. FCCLA is endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education (Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education) and the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences (AAFCS).
FCCLA does not discriminate based on race, color, sex, sexual orientation, creed, religion, age, national origin, handicap or disability, marital status, veteran status, citizenship status or any other attribute or characteristic protected by law.
Florida’s State Executive Council is a group of eight student leaders elected annually at the State Leadership Conference. Officers advise the state association on policy and procedures, membership recruitment initiatives, and other state programs.
