The National Future Farmers of America is a dynamic youth organization that changes lives and prepares students for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
The FFA was founded in 1928 to provide leadership training for high school students of vocational agriculture. The 33 young farm boys who congregated in Kansas City’s Baltimore Hotel that year could not have predicted how the organization they started would become a leader in agricultural education nationwide.
In 1950, the 81st Congress of the United States, recognizing the importance of the FFA as an integral part of the program of vocational agriculture, granted a Federal Charter to the FFA. Today, the FFA uses agricultural education to prepare students for more than 300 careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture.
Since 1928, millions of agriculture students - no one knows exactly how many - have donned the official FFA jacket and championed the FFA creed.
The FFA has opened its doors and its arms to minorities and women, ensuring that all students can reap the benefits of agricultural education, which prepares students for successful careers and a lifetime of informed choices in the global agriculture, food, fiber and natural resources systems.
The Future Farmers of America organization remains committed to the individual student, providing a path to achievement in premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
Now the organization is expanding the nation’s view of traditional agriculture and finding new ways to infuse it into the classroom.
The iconic blue corduroy jacket proudly worn by FFA members embodies years of history, tradition and excellence in agricultural education.
