FCCLA

 

FCCLA is a student-centered organization that students 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.   The students can participate in 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.

 

FCCLA At The Table

Research about families sharing meals together is compelling: Regular family meals promote healthy eating habits Eating dinner together improves academic performance in school: 52% of children are mostly “A/B” students when their families eat dinner together up to twice a week. The percentage jumps to 64% when they share five to seven meals weekly.  Family ties, such as family dinners, create a bond between guardians and their children. Compared to teens in families with strong ties, teens in families with weak ties are four times more likely to have tried tobacco and marijuana, and almost three times likelier to have tried alcohol.
