FCCLA Week is Around the Corner!
By Kayla Gullickson, VP of Community Service
FCCLA week is coming up next month! Are you ready?
February 13-17, 2017, is going to be a week full of fun, a week full of all things FCCLA.
The week will start off with a focus on Family. So pull UP a chair and enjoy a family dinner with an FCCLA@theTable event. Prepare, plan, and share a meal with your family, community, or local shelter! Don’t forget to post a photo of your favorite dish tagging #FCCLAattheTable and help us create an FCCLA Week Recipe book by sending your favorite recipe to firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos and recipes will be added to a Pinterest board and shared with our key partners.
Tuesday is all about Careers! Today, we want your chapter to host a career fair and highlight different FACS careers. Then post photos of the fair and use the hashtag #FCCLACareers.
The middle of the week is a time for Community! Our National Outreach Project, Lead2Feed, focuses on meeting a need in your community. Consider creating community care kits. Take a photo of the kits while you deliver them to a shelter and tag them with #FCCLAUPlifts.
Thursday is all about being a Leader! Tag someone who you think is a leader on social media and continue on with tagging different people as you get tagged. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #FCCLAURUP.
Finally, Friday’s focus is America. Share the Unlimited Possibilities you have gained through FCCLA on social media and with your community, state, and national leaders. Call, visit, or write your government leaders and tell them about FCCLA and FACS education and why it’s important. Also, don’t forget to sign up for the THUNDERCLAP. The Thunderclap will take place at 4:30 PM ET, when a prescheduled message about FCCLA will be sent out on participants’ social media accounts.
So, are you ready for FCCLA Week?
We want you to participate every day and post your pictures using the different hashtags. This week is all about FCCLA and spreading the word about this great organization, and we need your help to do just that.
