MLS FCCLA members attend State
Leadership meeting and win medals

Assisting the students in becoming aware of the importance and value of community service was guest speaker Mark J. Lindquist from Breath is Limited, with his powerful “Service My Way” presentation.

Members also had the opportunity to hear powerful messages through speakers and a 3-D presentation of human trafficking in the “Say Something” assembly program. They gained knowledge of the latest happenings in human trafficking and what is happening around the United States, but more importantly in North Dakota. This program was brought to the delegates through FIND (Free International North Dakota) and FREE International.

Students attending the conference also participated in a variety of service learning activities to raise money for the statewide service project, Children’s Miracle Network. During the 2014-2015 school year, North Dakota FCCLA members have raised over $22,000 in support of the Children’s Miracle Network, specifically Sanford’s Hospital in Fargo. The FCCLA is in their third year of a five year commitment to raise $100,000.00.

Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America is a dynamic and effective national student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important family, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education. Through their individual and chapter activities, FCCLA members practice what they have learned in Family and Consumer Sciences classes and develop skills for life-planning, goal setting, problem solving, decision making, teamwork, and communication. According to chapter advisor, Valerie Aho, members benefit from FCCLA in several ways: “Through FCCLA projects our chapter members address issues of everyday life. They learn to identify concerns, develop plans to address those concerns, carry out their plans, and evaluate both the results and the process. They discover what they are capable of doing and gain confidence in themselves.”

Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America is part of the Family and Consumer Sciences program in junior and senior high schools and prepares youth for success in their personal lives, their careers, and the communities in which they live. FCCLA is sponsored by the MLS School District and the North Dakota Department of Career and Technical Education. The MLS chapter currently has 70 members.
