FFA is a dynamic youth organization that is a part of agricultural education programs at middle schools and high schools. Founded as the Future Farmers of America, the name was changed in 1988 to reflect the growing diversity of agriculture. Today, student members are engaged in a wide range of curriculum and FFA activities, leading to over 300 career opportunities in agriculture. FFA is structured on three levels: local, state and national.
