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 as determined by the state department of education. FCCLA has over 150,000 members and more than 5,300 chapters from 48 state associations, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The organization has involved more than 10 million people 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 family as its central focus. Participation in national programs and chapter activities helps members become strong leaders in their families, careers and communities.

The Bayfield FCCLA chapter has made Community Service our primary focus for the 16/17 school year.  We havte helped with the Fall Harvest Festival, Breakfast with Santa, Wrapping books for the preschool, and baked dog biscuits for the Humane Society.  FCCLA was also proud to provide the meal for the CTE banquet held on May 10.
