THE FFA VISION
THE FFA VISION
Students whose lives are impacted by FFA and agricultural education will achieve academic and personal growth, strengthen American agriculture and provide leadership to build healthy local communities, a strong nation and a sustainable world.
Missouri FFA is 25,920 members strong —and growing! FFA continues to help the next generation rise up to meet the challenges of feeding a growing population by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of career pathways through their experiences in agricultural education. Today’s FFA members are future biologists, chemists, veterinarians, engineers and entrepreneurs! Thanks for helping us pave the way to being tomorrow’s leaders.
See It, Solve It, Share It!
As school is winding down your FFA chapter can be gearing up to serve! Summer is a great time to engage students in summer service opportunities like maintaining a community garden or hosting a river/road cleanup.
However you serve, be sure to share how your chapter is putting their leadership into action through service as part of the Living to Serve Chapter Challenge. Help FFA complete 930,000 volunteer hours by next year’s FFA convention.
Visit FFA.org/ChallengeAcceptedto log service hours, impacts and upload a few photos. The first Monday of each month National FFA will host a Facebook Live event and draw two (2) chapters to receive exclusive Living to Serve Chapter Challenge t-shirts as well as highlighting projects to inspire others to serve.
Due to the unprecedented times in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, Missouri FFA in partnership with Missouri Farmers Care Drive to Feed Kids is offering chapters an opportunity to take part in a $300 matching mini-grant.
The goal of the Chapter Mini-Grants is to provide FFA chapters a Living to Serve opportunity to address food insecurity needs or awareness. This is a one-time only opportunity.
