Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) will join more than 200,000 members in celebrating National FCCLA Week February 8-14, 2015. This year’s theme is “Together We Are United!” in recognition of the many things FCCLA students and advisers represent—both as individuals and as members of their chapters, state associations and the national FCCLA organization—in their families, schools and communities. 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.
