The Family and Consumer Services courses are designed to help students recognize the needs of the family in fulfilling the work responsibility in society and to understand the role of the family in the development of individuals and society. The courses are designed to help prepare students for work in the family so that improvements in the quality of family life and society can be made. A leadership development module, including organizational skills, critical thinking, communication, and project development is included in each course, both as process and content. The student organization, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), as an integral part of the curriculum, enhances leadership development and provides opportunities for community service.
