New Resources for Virginia Advisers for 2020-2021
The 2020-2021 State Executive Council is providing two resources advisers can use to add FCCLA fun to their virtual or in-person classes. The state officers will provide a video of a monthly FCCLA meeting, complete with activities, that can be played anytime by the adviser. Each meeting will be approximately 45 minutes long. The SEC advisers will provide a lesson plan for the month that can be used in both virtual and in-person settings. The lesson plan will utilize FCCLA programs and/or competitive events and will meet competencies in all Virginia FCS courses.
Meetings and lesson plans through October 31 are available to all Virginia FCS teachers on Google Drive. Go to for access to:
– Virginia FCCLA monthly meetings led by a state officer
– A lesson plan applicable to to any FCS course that can be used in a virtual or in-person setting.
NOTE: Beginning November 1, these resources will be for affiliated chapters only.

In addition to the items on this website, additional resources for Virginia FCCLA advisers can be found in this same Google Drive folder. Check this folder often, as items will be added throughout the year. The Google Drive folder also includes other resources for Virginia FCCLA chapters, so be sure to check back often!
