The Nebraska FCCLA Career Leader Peer Education Team, which focuses on Career Connection, is celebrating the month of November as Career Awareness Month. The team would like to see chapters complete a project that relates to one of the unites of Career Connection: My Skills, My Life, My Career, My Path. Members can sign up to participate in Industry Chats at nepris.com/industry/talks, which is a way to connect teachers and students with various industry experts virtually.
The Nebraska FCCLA Community Leader Team, which focuses on Families Acting for Community Traffic Safety, is promoting teen driver Safety throughout the month of October. Chapters are encouraged to complete a project that focuses on one aspect of the FACTS program: Your Safety, Vehicle Safety, Road Safety. Teen Driver Safety week is October 18-24, 2020 and would be an excellent time to plans and carry out one of these FACTS projects.

Capture the Action
In addition to these recognition opportunities, chapters can apply with outstanding projects related to each of the three National Programs represented. Stand Up, Career Connection, and FACTS National Programs provide valuable peer education opportunities for students. These projects can take place at any point during the year. The top three projects in each National Program will be recognized at the Peer Education Conference.
To complete a Capture the Action application, simply submit a picture and short description using the form provided. This is a great way to share the unique ideas that your chapter is incorporating as well as receiving recognition for those outstanding projects at the Peer Education Conference.
