Capitol Leadership


2018 Capitol Leadership

October 8-10

Washington, D.C.


This fall, FCCLA members and advisers are invited to attend Capitol Leadership in Washington, D.C. During Capitol Leadership, students will receive training focusing on networking, professionalism, strategic planning, and advocacy around key teen-centered current issues. Students will advocate for Family and Consumer Sciences and Career and Technical Education by showing policymakers how their support for education impacts teens in preparing to be college- and career-ready. An important aspect of Capitol Leadership features today’s teens meeting with their representatives to explain the importance of continued support for the Strengthening Career and Technical Education Act. Capitol Leadership is the first of several large gatherings FCCLA will host throughout the 2018-2019 school year to provide similar opportunities to students around the nation. For more information or specific questions, email or call 703-476-4900.
