A club is born
In 1917, President Woodrow Wilson signed
the first national vocational education act into
law
 This law started vocational programs such as
home economics and agriculture education
In 1945 a group of people met in Chicago and
selected a name and a constitution for a
national student home economics
organization.
A club is born
The first programs were called Home
Economics
Home Economics programs are now called
Family and Consumer Sciences.
We don’t just cook and sew
In 1999 the Future Homemakers of
America (FHA) officially changed its name
to Family, Career and Community Leaders
of America (FCCLA).
They changed the name to better reflect
the mission and purpose of the
organization.
Affiliation
To be affiliated means that a local chapter
of FCCLA has sent in its national and state
dues along with the names of all the
people in that local chapter.
Kentucky was the very first stateaffiliated association.
