FFA is the largest youth national organization.
"Future Farmers Of America" was founded back in 1928.
This is a national organization of students enrolled in vocational agriculture/ agribusiness. The FFA is an integral part of the curriculum of vocational agriculture/agribusiness students will receive instruction in personal leadership, growth and development. Their mission was to prepare future farmers for the challenges of a growing population.
Agriculture is more than planting and harvesting it is science, business, and art. Some of the goals are to show leadership, personal career skills, and love of FFA. Some of the students in FFA say it's exciting and constantly changes year around.The purpose of FFA is to produce confidence in diverse young men and women who will become productive citizens. This organization reaches from Alaska to Maine and from Puerto Rico to Hawaii. Any high school students in the U.S can be part of FFA if they are enrolled in Agriculture Education. The only requirements are based on how involved you are. Two of the things they do are leadership contests, career development events (CDE's), (which involves public speaking), and parliamentary procedures. They also have competitions that involve animals. They raise and show animals seen at the fair, and then they sell them to earn money and to cover the cost of there food and animals for the next year. This is what The National FFA Organization is all about.For more information visit www.FFA.org or www.nmFFA.org.
