The National FFA Organization is the largest student-run organization in the country and prepares students with an interest in science, business, and technology. Formerly known as Future Farmers of America, today the FFA is a widespread and diverse organization serving a half a million students annually. While the FFA certainly still serves students with an interest in farming, it also provides opportunities in medicine, research, technology, the environment, business, communications, and leadership. FFA members are on the forefront of advances in science, have opportunities to grow through leadership, and can become proficient in public speaking and career-related skills through activities available throughout the year in FFA.

Nationwide, nearly one half-million student members are engaged in a wide range of agricultural education activities, leading to over 300 career opportunities in the agricultural sciences, food, fiber, and natural resources industry.
