Manteca Unified School District students, members of the California Association of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) joined more than 100 members from all over the region attending a Chapter Officer Training Conference in Modesto.
FCCLA is a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) for students in grades 7-12 who are enrolled in Family and Consumer Science (FCS) programs, formerly Home Economics.
This year’s theme is “Inspired!” by FCCLA. Students attended the mid-day conference on Saturday at a restaurant in Modesto.  During the training, Region Officers led the members in opening ceremonies, ice breakers, team building activities, breakout training sessions, and taught a region cheer.  Officers from each of the region’s chapters attended and enjoyed meeting new people. “I thought COTC was amazing! The Region 6 Officers did a good job making sure everyone felt welcomed. I really loved the ice breaker game which was a singing challenge and I loved getting to meet all of the other officers.  It was also great to have training time with the Region Reporter,” said Emily Crutchfield, EUHS Reporter.
FCCLA: The Ultimate Leadership Experience is unique among youth organizations because its programs are planned and run by members, and it’s the only career and technical in-school student organization with a central focus on family. Participation in national programs and chapter activities helps members become strong leaders in families, careers, and communities.
