FCCLA's National Outreach Project is a national community service activity that gives our state delegations/members the opportunity to make a united impact concerning a need that the National Executive Council decides to address. Participation from FCCLA members is optional. When state delegations/members choose to participate, each state/member works with their local chapters and members to fundraise and collect items from schools and communities through service. The goal of this project is to get students actively involved in making a difference by uniting together with the National Outreach Project. The success continues year to year and today FCCLA is still working towards donating money.
