Family, Career and Community Leaders of America

Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is a nonprofit, national career and technical student organization for young men and women in Family and Consumer Sciences education and related technical programs in public and private school, in Middle School and High School.  Everyone is part of a family, and FCCLA is the only national Career and Technical Student Organization with the family as its central focus.  Since 1945, FCCLA members have been making a difference in their families, careers, and communities by addressing important personal, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education and related technical programs.

Today over 160,000 members in nearly 5,400 chapters are active in a network of associations in 47 states, including the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Chapter projects focus on a variety of youth concerns, including teen pregnancy, parenting, family relationships, substance abuse, peer pressure, environment, nutrition and fitness, teen violence, and career exploration. Involvement in FCCLA offers members the opportunity to expand their leadership potential and develop skills for life -- planning, goal setting, problem solving, decision making, and interpersonal communication -- necessary in the home and workplace.

Pennsylvania Dress Code (Effective July 2013) - The Board of Directors and State Executive Council approved a Dress Code Policy for all Pennsylvania FCCLA Conferences and Events. Advisers and chapter members are encouraged to download the Dress Code Policy and Dress Code PowerPoint.  (Both files are posted at the bottom of this page.)
