The letters FFA stand for Future Farmers of America. However, the organization is not strictly limited to future farmers. It works with students looking to prepare for future careers by achieving growth in premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education. FFA takes great pride in helping students find their individual talents and strengths and encourages them to build on them. The organization offers a variety of events in which students can push themselves and compete with one another to prepare them for a future career and ultimately grow as a person.
