Leadership Academy

leadership academyLeadership 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.

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.

NEW PiloT Opportunity Starting in February 2022

 

In partnership with FranklinCovey, FCCLA is launching a unique pilot program for a limited number of members utilizing an interactive learning management system. FranklinCovey Leader in Me® materials offer self-paced, on demand courses that can be used as leader-led trainings or as standalone learning options. The Leader in Me® learning platform’s Student Leadership Courses provides members with in-depth training on the life-readiness skills that will benefit them as members and throughout their life. 

FCCLA will require members participating in the Leadership Academy to begin with the Life Readiness course, Leading Your Life, as it takes students through an in-depth look into the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens and is the foundation of all the courses. The additional courses within the platform will be available at a future date as we continue the Leadership Academy program. To learn more about each of these courses, please visit the website at https://www.leaderinme.org/student-development-high/.

The cost for each member to participate in this pilot program for the Life Readiness course is $45. This includes access to the platform for the 12-week session, as well as bi-weekly virtual discussion sessions facilitated by Leadership Training Team members. These sessions are required for the pilot program and will provide an opportunity for members to network and discuss the material covered in the lessons. The LTT facilitator will also be reviewing the assignments completed and be available to answer any questions throughout the 12-week session.

Students will register for this course on their Membership Portal under the E-Store Tab. 

The deadline to Register and pay is January 28, 2022. The invoice must be paid for the member to be considered registered.  After January 28, 2022 registrants will receive more detailed information about the course.
