Overview: The FFA is a dynamic youth organization aimed to prepare its members for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.  Participants develop their talents through hands-on experiences, giving members the tools to achieve real-world success in a wide variety of career fields. FFA is an intra-curricular organization and is one of the three components of agricultural education; classroom and laboratory experience, Supervised Agricultural Experiences (SAE- WBL), and Student Leadership Organizations (FFA).  Today there are over 700,000 FFA members across all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.
In New York State, agricultural education, as well as the FFA, is overseen by the New York Agricultural Outreach and Education organization which works in partnership with Cornell University and the New York State Education Department.
