Founded in 1928 as the Future Farmers of America, The National FFA Organization is a youth organization that has almost half a million student members who are engaged in a wide range of agricultural education activities. The organization has over 7,000 chapters which concentrate on three primary areas: premier leadership, personal growth and career success. While 30 percent of its members come from farming communities, some 70 percent of FFA members are from rural non-farm, urban and suburban areas. On the homepage, visitors can learn about such events as National FFA Week, scholarship opportunities, and the organization's various conferences. For educators, the Educators Workroom will be a place that will be very helpful. Here they can learn about innovative teaching practices in agricultural education and also learn about various strategies for working with young people.
