FFA (Future Farmers of America) is an intercurricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership. It is one of three components of agricultural education.
FFA is not just for students who want to be production farmers; FFA also welcomes members who aspire to careers as teachers, doctors, scientists, business owners and more.
The National FFA Organization remains committed to the individual student, providing a path to achievement in premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
FFA continues to help the next generation rise up to meet those challenges by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of agricultural career pathways. So today, FFA is still the Future Farmers of America; but also the Future Biologists, Future Chemists, Future Veterinarians, Future Engineers and Future Entrepreneurs of America, too.
FFA is made up of state associations; those state associations are made up of local chapters.
FFA programs are funded through sponsorships and individual donations at the local, state and national level.
National Dues: $7 per year
