TODAY’S FFA MEMBERS ARE THE LEADERS AND INNOVATORS OF TOMORROW.
With more than 90 years of tradition, the National FFA organization strives to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
Designated a national week in 1947, the week of George Washington’s birthday, National FFA Week runs from Saturday to Saturday and gives FFA members an opportunity to educate the public about agriculture. During the week, chapters conduct a variety of activities to help others in their schools and communities learn about FFA and agricultural Education.
Today’s FFA members are the leaders and innovators of tomorrow. The organization provides leadership, personal growth and career training. Through agricultural education and hands-on learning, they are preparing for unique career opportunities in the food, fiber and natural resources industries.
