Power of One

A Power of One project is an individual activity you create to reach a personal goal. Your project should relate to subjects taught in Family and Consumer Sciences and FCCLA. Projects must involve in-depth effort.

Each Power of One unit includes suggested projects. Feel free to adapt a project to your needs or develop your own project. Make sure your project relates to the unit and has been approved by your FCCLA adviser.

A project used in other FCCLA activities may be adapted for Power of One as long as it is an in depth individual activity. For example, if you do a project on family councils in the Families First program, you can use parts of that project again in the Power of One unit, “Family Ties,” by holding family council meetings at home.
