Mission: 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.
Motto: Learning to do, Doing to learn, Earning to live, Living to serve.
3-Part System: FFA is not extracurricular! The program is part of a three-part model of education that consists of classroom instruction, supervised agricultural experiences and the FFA. Classroom agricultural education is applied to hands-on learning opportunities called supervised agricultural experiences (SAEs). SAEs include activities such as starting a business, working for an established company or working in production agriculture. The FFA provides members the opportunity for leadership experience and competitions, scholarships and personal opportunities for involvement.
