Families First Units:
To help members focus their projects, Families First offers five units. Members may complete projects in one or several units. There is no particular order to them; although, "Families Today" might be a good place to start. It covers topics that provide a general overview of families and related issues:
Members can also experience other cultures and family relationships through Japanese Exchange, sponsored by Kikkoman Corporation. Members who are sophomores or juniors can apply for a Japanese Exchange Scholarship to spend four- to six-weeks as an exchange student with a Japanese host family.
FCCLA offers national recognition to chapters that complete Families First projects. This hon0r includes cash awards and special recognition at the National Leadership Conference online, and in Teen Times magazine. Chapters apply online for recognition for their hard work and innovative projects with the National Families First Program Award Application.
