Recently, club officers of our Culinary and Family Sciences department traveled to Anaheim, California to participate in a FCCLA Leadership Conference.  What is FCCLA?  It stands for Family, Career and Community Leaders of America which is a student organization.  Its primary goals are “to provide personal growth, leadership development, and career preparation opportunities for students in Family and Consumer Sciences education”.  It offers many types of programs.  Specifically at Moon Valley, FCCLA allows our student participants to access their assistance with fundraising, training conferences, and even competitions.

This particular trip was a leadership conference at Disneyland.  Our culinary students were able to receive a backstage tour with a Disney Chef who introduced the teens to the inner workings of their restaurants.  The next day was filled with team building workshops that illustrated Walt Disney’s business and leadership vision which continues to this day.  The experience allowed the club officers get to know one another, and helped gel their team.

Moon Valley’s affiliation with FCCLA is proving to be an enriching experience.  The Rockets look forward to supporting this collaboration and to seeing the wonderful results.
