Michigan FCCLA's Community Service Activity



Deadline is March 1st


The 2021-2022 State Community Service Activity is being tied in with the national FCCLA program, Families First, which is a national peer education program through which youth gain a better understanding of how families work and learn skills to become strong family members. Its goals are to: help youth become strong family members and leaders for today and tomorrow and strengthen the family as the basic unit of society.


Families First offers five units. There is no particular order to them; although, “Families Today” might be a good place to start, since it covers topics that provide a general overview of families and related issues:

  • Families Today - Understand and celebrate families
  • You-Me-Us - Strengthen family relationships
  • Meet the Challenge - Overcome obstacles together
  • Balancing Family and Career - Manage multiple responsibilities
  • Parent Practice - Learn to nurture children.


For the Michigan FCCLA State Community Service Activity, a chapter must complete:

  • One activity in any unit in to receive the Bronze award
  • Two activities in any unit to receive the Silver award
  • Three activities in any unit to receive the Gold award
