What is the FFA?

When you pick up an FFA manual, it becomes evident that the FFA is an organization dedicated to improving the growth of individuals that choose to join, as well as mentoring individuals not necessarily associated with the FFA.

The FFA is an organization designed to prepare students for premier leadership, personal growth and career success. The FFA is structured on three levels- local, state and national. National FFA Organization is led by a board of directors and six student national officers. Together, they act on recommendations from the national convention delegates and agricultural educations' stakeholders to set the vision and policy for FFA. State associations function within the constitution of the national organization but may also create individual leadership, award and competition programs. As on the national level, state officers lead the membership of the associations and are elected by state convention delegates. The heart of the organization is at the local level. FFA chapters may be chartered in any public school with an agricultural education program.

The letters of the FFA stand for Future Farmers of America. However, in 1988 the name was changed from FFA to the National FFA Organization to reflect the growing diversity of agriculture. Over the last 83 years the FFA and agricultural education have grown together to encompass all aspects of agriculture. These aspects include but are not limited to, production farming, agribusiness and forestry, biotechnology, marketing, and food processing.
