Family and Consumer Science (FCS) classes are comprehensive classes that provide secondary and postsecondary students the opportunity to explore and prepare for many different types of careers. Some of these include careers in culinary, education, early childhood, fashion design, interior design, and human services. For many years, these classes have given students the skills, attitudes, and behaviors necessary for their futures, allowing them to manage their finances; balance their personal, family, and work lives; strengthen their wellbeing; and access their creative and critical thinking skills to address problems in their home and community. They give students an understanding of the real world and a connection to their community with community service projects and real life applications.

They need YOU to consider studying Family and Consumer Sciences; to realize the impact that FCS programs have on training America’s workforce; to recognize the role that these programs have on the quality of life; and finally, to speak up for FCS education and make it a priority for graduation requirements.
