What is FFA?

FFA Mission – The National FFA Organization is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of young people by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.

FFA is not extracurricular! The program is part of a three-part model of education that consists of (1) classroom instruction, (2) supervised agricultural experiences and the (3) FFA. 

Classroom agricultural education is applied to hands-on learning opportunities called supervised agricultural experiences (SAEs). SAEs include activities such as starting a business, working for an established company or starting a home garden.

FFA activities vary greatly from chapter to chapter, but are based in a well-integrated curriculum. Chapter activities and programs concentrate on three areas of the FFA mission: premier leadership, personal growth and career success.

Students can participate in the FFA while learning valualbe leadership skills and gaining technical knowledge by participating in career development events.  CDEs that students can participate in are: Poultry Judging, Floral Design, Floriculture, Creed and Public Speaking, Wood Working, Lawnmower Driving, Meats Judging and Livestock Judging. Come by the agriculture room for a complete list of CDEs.
