Virginia FCCLA Encourages Members to “Say Yes to FCS!”
Virginia FCCLA has joined the national initiative to build strong leadership for the future of Family and Consumer Sciences. There is an established and growing shortage of family and consumer sciences professionals to serve in educator positions in secondary education, higher education, and Extension education. This shortage increasingly results in educator positions going unfilled or filled with unqualified individuals. Shortages of family and consumer sciences educators and those enrolled in family and consumer sciences educator preparation programs too often result in program closures. We want to make sure there are many qualified FCS educators ready and willing to be FCCLA chapter advisers! Grow Your Own!
