What can I do with a CAREER in AGRICULTURE??????

Our nation's economy revolves around agriculture.  Agriculture is everywhere you look.  Your home, your food, your car.............absolutely everywhere.

What is FFA?

The FFA operates on local, state and national levels. Student members belong to chapters organized at the local school level. Agricultural education instructors serve as chapter advisors. Chapters are organized under state associations headed by an advisor and executive secretary, often employees of the state department of education. States conduct programs and host annual conventions.

Founded in 1928, the former "Future Farmers of America" brought together students, teachers and agribusiness to solidify support for agricultural education. The name of the organization was changed to the National FFA Organization in 1988 to reflect the growing diversity of agriculture. Today, more than 500,000 student members are engaged in a wide range of agricultural education activities.

The Georgia FFA Association was founded in 1929. It is the 3rd largest state association in the nation with over 30,000 FFA members.
