Promote Access from AT&T
FCCLA has been selected to engage our chapters in specific communities across the country including the cities in your state listed above to promote Access from AT&T. The goal of the Access program is to create a more prosperous and just future by ensuring all Americans can leverage the transformative power of technology and the Internet - regardless of race, age or income level.

We currently do not have any chapters from the Ohio target cities registered to participate and we were hoping you could assist us in encouraging chapters in the cities above! If a chapter is one of the first 200 chapters to sign-up, they will receive a Kick-off Toolkit including AT&T and FCCLA items as shown in the attached photo as well as an electronic toolkit. The chapters will be asked to sign up, promote the Access program (which is open to everyone in their community who has one person receiving SNAP benefits in the home), and hold enrollment events.
The best part? These chapters will receive
$150 upon completion of the required milestones to use as they'd like!  AND this is a terrific project for them to use to apply for an FCCLA Leadership Service in Action Award. We make it very easy for them to get started.  They simply register via the link below.  We've also recorded a brief "how to" webinar, including helpful tips for hosting an event in their communities. Anyone interested can access that webinar here:
