(Replaces the STOP the Violence national program)

This new program will be a free resource to chapters affiliating by November 1, 2020. Check with the national FCCLA staff for details.

The FCCLA Stand Up national peer education program guides members to develop, plan, carry out, and evaluate advocacy activities to improve the quality of life in their communities. Members develop their voice to make a positive impact. Through their projects, members experience character development and improve their critical and creative thinking, interpersonal communication, leadership, practical knowledge, and career preparation.

Stand Up Units
• Assess current needs
• Educate others regarding concerns
• Advocate so that they can make a difference now and in the future
