Student Body



The FCCLA Student Body national peer education program helps young people learn to eat right, be fit, and make healthy choices. Its goals are to: help young people make informed, responsible decisions about their health, provide youth opportunities to teach others, and develop healthy lifestyles, as well as communication and leadership skills.

The teen years are an ideal time to establish healthy attitudes and habits to last a lifetime. Unfortunately, many of our youth are not physically fit, have poor eating habits, and are often bothered by a lack of self-esteem. Student Body gives teens the facts and incentives they need to build a healthy body, both today and in the future.

Student Body Units:

To help members focus their projects, Student Body addresses three units. Members may complete projects in one or several units:

  • Eat Right — Explore good nutrition, eating disorders, healthy snacks, supplements, vegetarianism, and more
  • Be Fit — Take action related to lifelong exercise habits, obesity, sports training, and other topics
  • Make Healthy Choices— Choose a positive lifestyle by avoiding drugs, alcohol, and tobacco; managing stress; building self esteem; and practicing good character.
