Formally called the Future Farmers of America, the FFA is part of a three-circle model of education that consists of classroom instruction, supervised agricultural experiences and the FFA membership. Classroom agricultural education is applied to hands-on learning opportunities called supervised agricultural experiences (SAEs). SAEs include activities such as raising show animals, growing plants in the greenhouse, starting a business, working for an established company, or participating in an internship. The FFA provides members the opportunity for leadership experience and career development while reinforcing agricultural education through competitions, scholarships and personal opportunities for involvement. FFA is not extra curricular!
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.
