Leadership is a primary focus of FCCLA. As students take responsibility for planning, implementing, and evaluating chapter projects and activities, they develop the skills needed to take the lead in their families, careers, and communities.
Introduction to Leadership
All members have leadership potential whether or not they hold formal chapter leadership positions. It often comes down to exploring abilities, taking risks, and developing a personal leadership style. A successful chapter will recognize that it needs different kinds of leaders for different experiences and will encourage leadership diversity.
