Peer Education

Peer Education is a concept developed by National FCCLA to develop programs which are delivered to their membership and members' communities via their members - hence the term peer education. Iowa has selected to focus on three of the eight national programs: Families First, Financial Fitness and Student Body. In addition, Iowa also maintains a peer education team with a focus on Public Relations to encourage members to promote and publicize their chapter and the work they do towards accomplishing the mission and purposes of FCCLA.

Peer education is a great place for members to begin if they want to become involved! Members have the opportunity to identify a concern in their community in relationship to one of the peer education areas, set a goal, plan a series of three projects, carry their projects out, reflect on their project, submit their projects to state staff and State Executive Council for review, and last but not least, receive recognition for the work they have accomplished.

If you wish to learn more about a specific peer education program, you may find that information under the Peer Education tab in the menu OR by clicking on the desired program from the above paragraph OR contact our Peer Education Coordinator, Janet Mann.
