Who are we?
Welcome to the Austin High School Family Career Community Leaders of America website run by local officers Kenny Blackmon and Heather Sawyer. The organization was created in 1945 by youth and adult leaders, in home economics, who wanted to establish an organization for youths, supported and run by youth, where young men an women would learn leadership skills, prepare for adult hood, and have fun. We as a local chapter work hard throughout the year to accomplish that very mission through the various projects chaired by local officers and members under the direction of our advisor Ms Bethany Gonzalez.
The FCCLA was founded in 1945 under the name Future Homemakers of America (FHA). Over the past 61 years, FCCLA has changed and evolved into what it is today. We are the ONLY in-school organization where the main focus is the family. There are, nationally, 220,000 members in approximately 7,500 local chapters in 53 states (including District of Columbia, US Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico) We are the group that works to make our local community a better place for all through local chapter projects such as our FACTS program that helps tell our community about the dangers on the road and our Student Body program that helps teach our fellow students about the importance of a healthy life style.

We are the Family Career Community Leaders of America.
We face the futures with warm courage and high hope.
For we have the clear conscious of seeking old and precious values.
For we are the builders of homes.
Homes for America’s future,
Homes where living will be the expression of everything that is good and fair,
Homes where truth and love and security will be realities not dreams.
