"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."
National FFA Organization
FFA is a dynamic youth organization within agricultural education that prepares students for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success. FFA was created in 1928 as the Future Farmers of America; however, the name was changed to the National FFA Organization in 1988 to reflect the growing diversity of agriculture. Today, more than 500,000 student members are engaged in a wide range of agricultural education activities, leading to over 300 career opportunities in the agricultural science, food, fiber, and natural resources industry. Student success remains the primary mission of FFA.
