“Never let anyone silence the story inside of you!” -Dr. Julia Garcia

After 10+ years working with over a quarter million students nationwide, social emotional health expert and TEDx Speaker JULIA GARCIA is leading a generation of young voices to speak up, stand up and rise up TOGETHER.

JULIA GARCIA is extraordinary in her ability to create a culture of empathy and compassion on campuses. With her infectious energy, raw spoken word poetry, and powerful audience interaction, she creates a space for students to have a real experience instead of just attending an event.

Her diverse background, unparalleled passion, and PHD research make JULIA GARCIA one of the most dynamic and critical voices of our generation. In a digital era with overwhelming pressures and fake highlight reels, JULIA GARCIA is a refreshing a reminder that we are never alone and your story and your voice matter.

Join us in hearing Dr. Julia Garcia’s story during the Opening General Session of the 2020 Virtual National Leadership Conference! Register to attend VNLC at

National Volunteer Week is this week, April 19-25. We welcome this opportunity to recognize the important work of our FCCLA volunteers! Whether you have served as an evaluator for a Competitive Event, an usher at a general session, or have volunteered to present a workshop, you are one of the reasons members and advisers love coming to FCCLA events.

Without volunteers at all levels of the FCCLA organization, we would not be able to implement our mission of promoting personal growth and leadership development through FCS education.

Thank you to all of our hardworking volunteers for being such an important part of our FCCLA story!

Question about Virtual Star Events at Nationals: Can the students present using Screencastify - it can see their presentation and web cam of themselves talking about it in a portion of the screen then upload to youtube?
Where can I find the logos on the new website. I always have my students brand their flyers and in the past they could just go to the website, drag, drop, and go. I am struggling today.
Hey folks, I remember hearing at NLC that there would be name change for the Recycle & Redesign STAR event, but I can't remember the exact wording. Can anyone help me out here?
Does anyone know if we can purchase the straws that were given as gifts to volunteers at NLC? We would like to purchase some as thank you gifts
So excited, first student qualified for Nationals today... Wahoo! California, here we come!

I have a team competing at cluster for the Lifeskills knowledge bowl. This is our first time. I am confused and overwhelmed with all the directions. They have to do the first round by oct 26. Right? Do they take the round as a team on one computer or do each of them login and take separate tests?
