The National Partnership to recruit, prepare, and support Family and Consumer Sciences educators has been awarded a USDA Grant and matching funds from AAFCS, FCCLA, and SUNY Oneonta, totaling $936,572. In addition, 14 FCS professional organizations and partners have agreed to work together to meet the goals of the grant. The main objectives of this project are to create resources to support FCS educator recruitment, prepare future FCS educators, promote FCS careers, and share preparation resources on a national level.
