Over the years FCCLA has developed eight national programs that are based on the principle of peer-to-peer education. Each of these eight national programs has modules that provide direction for members to develop projects that address concerns centered around that program focus.

FCCLA has also established the Japanese Exchange program which allows members in America to travel by means of scholarship to our sister organization in Japan for a period of four to six weeks.


Chapters are responsible for submitting the Program Award Application for the respective program in the DLG system by March 2, 2020.

Program Award Application Review Process

  • Chapter advisers are responsible for informing the State Executive Director of the national program(s) for which they have submitted a program award application. A minimum of two (2) pictures documenting the project should accompany this notification.
