As separate organizations and through the Partnership, we are committed to nurturing and improving public education above all. We are determined to fight for family needs, which must be met in order to make our public schools the equalizer they have been and should be for society. This encompasses quality of life issues, such as health care for all Americans, safe neighborhoods and a caring government.

FCFT's Partners:



We are proud partners of NoVA Outside’s Student Environmental Action Showcase (SEAS). SEAS is a regional event welcoming students from Alexandria City, Arlington County, Fairfax City/County,  Falls Church City, Loudoun County, and Prince William County schools.

SEAS brings these students together to amplify youth voice in environmental problem-solving. Student presenters, green/eco teams, and classroom groups share their projects reducing waste, conserving energy, improving water quality, and preserving natural habitat in their schoolyards and communities.
