State Project Thrusts

The statewide focus for community service projects are selected every two years by the State Officers. Called state projects thrusts, these topics are based on current issues in society and communities.

They  provide an area of emphasis for planning a chapter’s annual program of work and activities. They also serve as topics for the Competitive Recognition Events such as Chapter Exhibit; Community Involvement; Energy and Resource Conservation; Nutrition Education; and Consumer Education. By focusing on these topics, California FCCLA can make a coordinated impact in providing solutions for societal issues while also raising public awareness of California FCCLA.

State Project Thrusts

1. Think Green: The main focus is to help prevent the destruction of our environment. This means protecting our water supplies and conserving resources. Examples for completing this service are: holding beach clean ups, composting, recycling, and reusing materials. This aligns with the following National Programs: Power of One and Leadership Service in Action.
 
2.  Feed a Friend: This cause is helping or extending a hand to those in our society who are unable to feed themselves. Prevention of hunger is essential to today’s society, and there are many ways to support the matter. Volunteering at local food banks, running food drives, and organizations such as UNICEF or Feed The Children are only just a couple of tactics to help prevent hunger. This aligns with the following National Programs: Power of One and Leadership Service in Action.
 
3.  Fill the Need: Every community contains different needed services. This is a chance for chapters to participate in any local community organization. Local services may include, Make a Wish, Invisible Children, Teen Driver Safety, or any others who need assistance. This aligns with the following National Programs: Power of One, Leadership Service in Action, Families First, and FACTS.
