The Montana Association of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) serves as the state affiliate for the National Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) organization. Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is a nonprofit national Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) for young men and women in Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) education in public and private school through grade 12. Everyone is part of a family, and FCCLA is the only national Career and Technical Student Organization with the family as its central focus. The mission of the organization is to promote personal growth and leadership development through family and consumer sciences education. Focusing on multiple roles of family member, wage earner, and community leader, members develop skill for the life through character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal communication, practical knowledge and career preparation. Montana FCCLA works directly with our national organization to provide programming focusing on a variety of youth concerns including safe driving, family relationships, peer pressure, environment, nutrition and fitness, financial education, teen violence, and career exploration. Involvement in FCCLA offers members the opportunity to expand their leadership potential and develop skills for life — planning, goal setting, problem solving, decision making, and interpersonal communication — necessary in the home and workplace.
Montana FCCLA is searching for a State Director to perform the daily tasks of Montana FCCLA as well as manage the organization. The State Director will oversee the operations of the entire organization, implement the strategic goals and objectives of the organization, work with the Board of Director’s President to enable the Board to fulfill its governance function, and provide direction and leadership toward achievement of the organization’s mission, strategy, and annual goals and objectives. The State Director will work closely with the FCS Education Specialist at the Office of Public Instruction to keep FCS and FCCLA aligned.
