The National FFA Organization is for students preparing for careers in the industry of agriculture.
FFA activities and award programs complement instruction in vocational agriculture/agribusiness by giving students practical experience in the application of agricultural skills and knowledge gained in classes.
A major emphasis of the FFA Club is the development of leadership skills and abilities to prepare young people for leadership roles in their agricultural careers. To be a member of FFA, students must be enrolled in a career & technical agriculture/agribusiness program. Students may retain their membership in the FFA following their graduation until age 21.
FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
The mission of Agricultural Education is to prepare and support individuals for careers, build awareness and develop leadership for the food, fiber and natural resource systems.
