The reality of California's competitive job market is that employees must have the education and training employers require. Family and Consumer Sciences Related Occupations (FCSRO) programs teach students solid employment skills to enter and advance in careers that are found in some of the state’s fastest growing industries.   

Specialized training in "career pathways" allows students to explore and pursue careers options in nine different areas. (Click on career pathways for chart.)

The depth and variety of the program's curriculum allows students to then secure entry-level jobs immediately after graduation, pursue advanced training or higher education for technical and professional positions, or "transfer" skills to a variety of careers. Many Family and Consumer Sciences graduates apply their education and knowledge as they move up the career ladder to become managers, employers, and entrepreneurs.

The real strength of California's Family and Consumer Sciences programs is that they not only provide students with the background to get jobs, they also teach students how to be good employees: employees who understand how their industries work; employees who appreciate the relationship between themselves and their employers; employees who successfully balance their home and work lives.

Family and Consumer Sciences students enhance their educational experiences and career preparation through participation in FCCLA, the career- technical organization for Family and Consumer Sciences students. Through participation in FCCLA Competitive Recognition Events and community service activities, members develop citizenship and leadership skills.
