Montana FCCLA Is… Service Learning
Service learning brings community service and service learning together. FCCLA facilitates efforts through chapter, state and national activities.
Highlight opportunities for chapters to build unique service learning projects for their own communities. These can include projects in nutrition, bullying, family relations and endless other possibilities.
Each year Montana FCCLA Selects a State Outreach Project with a partner organization to reach to the
community and help work towards a cause. The goal of this project is to have each student get actively involved in making a difference by uniting together. FCCLA wants members to see and know firsthand that even a small effort made by many can have a huge and positive impact on others. The 2016-17 State Outreach Project is Lead2Feed.
