What is FFA?
FFA is an intracurricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership. It is one of the three components of agricultural education.
What does FFA stand for?
The letters in "FFA" stand for Future Farmers of America. But FFA is not just for students who want to be production farmers; FFA also welcomes members who aspire to careers as teachers, doctors, scientists, business owners and more.
Today, the National FFA Organization remains committed to the individual student, providing a path to achievement in premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
FFA continues to help the next generation rise up to meet those challenges by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of agricultural career pathways. So today, we are still the Future Farmers of America. But, we are the Future Biologists, Future Chemists, Future Veterinarians, Future Engineers and Future Entrepreneurs of America, too.
How is FFA Structured?
FFA Organization is made up of statewide associations, and within those statewide associations, there are local chapters. Chico FFA is one of these local chapters.
