BENEFITS OF BEING IN IDAHO FCCLA
Idaho FCCLA offers members opportunities to discover their potential. There are many ways to become involved as a member including programs, projects, volunteering, and partnerships.
Any student who has taken a course in Family and Consumer Sciences, or as determined by the State Department of Education, middle school through grade 12 is eligible for active membership in an organized FCCLA chapter within their school. Once the state and national dues are paid, the student will be an official affiliated member. Teachers can join FCCLA too! Teachers certified to teach Family and Consumer Sciences education, or as determined by the State Department of Education, can serve as the FCCLA chapter Adviser.
Chapter affiliation is an important step in joining FCCLA. Chapters must affiliate by November 1st this year to continue to receive access to the resources in the FCCLA portal.
