For 72 years, NJ FCCLA has provided members with opportunities for leadership,
achievement, and personal growth, thereby preparing several generations of student
leaders to be college and career ready. This year’s theme, “Generation Leadership”,
encourages leadership development and unites the entire New Jersey Association.
New Jersey FCCLA wants to create one cohesive team that focuses on the mission of
the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America.
We are Generation Leadership!
