Family, Career and Community Leaders of America’s Adviser Recognition Program rewards outstanding local Family and Consumer Sciences teachers who make significant contributions to the organization.
Master Adviser program recognizes outstanding leaders in their communities, schools, and states. Adviser recognition plays an important role in highlighting the accomplishments and efforts of FCCLA’s educator population.
The Master Adviser program recognizes advisers who have been successful in leading an FCCLA chapter for at least three years. These advisers promote the organization, operate an integrated chapter with a balanced program of work, and facilitate youth-centered activities while keeping abreast of the issues in their field.
Without capable adult leaders, students could not take advantage of the many opportunities offered through FCCLA. Being an effective adviser takes special skills and a tremendous commitment of time and energy. Exceptional advisers motivate their chapters to take advantage of opportunities beyond the local level, use a wide variety of resources available to them, and encourage student involvement.
Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) is a dynamic and effective career and technical student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important personal, family, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education. FCCLA has more than 164,000 members and more than 5,300 chapters from 49 state associations, in addition to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
