The National FFA Organization (previously known as the Future Farmers of America) envisions a future in which all agricultural education students will discover their passion in life and build on that insight to chart the course for their education, career and personal future. 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.

Agricultural Education prepares students for successful careers and a lifetime of informed choices in global agriculture, food, fiber and natural resources systems.

FFA offers hands-on programs that focus on agricultural science in every state in the nation, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

The National FFA Organization operates under a Federal Charter granted by the 81st Congress of the United States, and is an integral part of public instruction in agriculture. The U.S. Department of Education provides leadership and helps set direction for the FFA as a service to state and local agricultural education programs.

With the National FFA Organization’s federal charter, FFA is directly connected to the federal government as well as local communities. Our educational programing and awards and recognition programs reach more than a half a million members with opportunities at the local, state and national level.
