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.
