Values of FCCLA
Do you enjoy repeating our organization’s creed at the end of every single FCCLA meeting? It’s similar to reciting the Pledge of Allegiance every single morning at school. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, values are defined as “the the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.” You may not know it, but the FCCLA creed is actually the baseline of the values in our organization. Our organization was founded in 1945 with the same values that have been carried on throughout the past 70 years! We don’t repeat our creed just because we enjoy the sound of our own voices— we do it because it means something! We establish at the beginning of our creed that we are the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. There is no one else in this entire nation that can compare with FCCLA members because, “We face the future with warm courage and high hope.” This sentence lets us know that whatever background we come from, or whatever career goals we have, each and every one of us have set a high standard for each other and will go out into society with courage to achieve what we set out to accomplish! This year, as you continue your FCCLA journey by attending chapter, state, and national meetings, I encourage you to take a look back at our creed and personally see how it makes a difference in YOUR life. Next time you repeat the creed, repeat it with power, passion, and pride!
