CHICAGO — More than 6,100 nationwide members, advisers, alumni and guests of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), gathered in Chicago, Ill. July 4-8 for the 2010 National Leadership Conference. Michael Salazar, a junior at Los Alamos High School and Dr. Juanita Jebbanema, a teacher at Los Alamos High School, were among them.
This year marked the anniversary of FCCLA and students celebrated “65 Years of Leadership.” Throughout the five-day convention, participants examined and discussed several critical issues, including family, school and community violence prevention, physical as well as financial fitness, future career exploration and community service projects.
A number of youth issues, such as the changing roles of men and women in the home and workplace, traffic safety and obesity prevention were also explored at the meeting through presentations, workshops and youth sessions.
Salazar will continue to work with other FCCLA members and advisers in New Mexico to encourage others to discover their strengths, motivate members to target career goals and initiate a plan to ignite youth leadership in the community.
