National FFA Organization
(Formerly, Future Farmers of America)

Founded in 1928, the FFA organization represents a large diversity of over 300 careers in the food, fiber and natural resources industry. FFA uses agricultural education to create real-world success. Activities vary greatly from school to school, but are based in a well-integrated curriculum. FFA programs concentrate on three areas of our mission: premier leadership, personal growth and career success.

More than 7,000 FFA chapters are currently in existence; their programs are managed on a local, state and national level. Each chapter’s Program of Activities is designed with the needs of the students in mind. The FFA motto gives members twelve short words to live by: Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, Living to Serve.
