FFA

FFA is a dynamic youth organization within agricultural education that prepares students for premier leadership, personal growth and career success.
 
FFA was created in 1928 as the Future Farmers of America; however, the name was changed to the National FFA Organization in 1988 to reflect the growing diversity of agriculture.
 
Today, more than 500,000 student members are engaged in a wide range of agricultural education activities, leading to over 300 career opportunities in the agricultural science, food, fiber and natural resources industry. Student success remains the primary mission of FFA.
 
As an FFA member, you’ll work on developing your potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success.  By participating in competitions, degree programs, conferences, state and national conventions, community service projects, summer camps and chapter committees, you’ll grow in ways that utilize your talents and help you develop important leadership skills. 
The key to success in FFA is to get involved!
