Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), is a dynamic and effective national student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important personal, family, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education. FCCLA has over 200,000 members and over 6,500 chapters from 50 state associations, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The organization has involved more than ten million youth since its founding in 1945.
FCCLA: The Ultimate Leadership Experience is unique among youth organizations because its programs are planned and run by members. It is the only career and technical in-school student organization with the family as its central focus. Participation in national programs and chapter activities helps members become strong leaders in their families, careers, and communities.

Any ETMS student can join FCCLA; we meet on Mondays after school until 5:00 pm. The cost is $15 and includes a t-shirt, snacks, and groceries. Each month features a different focus. One month may be Cooking Club; the next month we may have Sewing Circle. Throughout the school year, there will be plenty of opportunities to serve our community and school with babysitting and volunteering for events.
