FFA is a dynamic youth organization within agricultural education that changes lives and prepares students for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success. FFA was created in 1928 as Future Farmers of America; that name was changed in 1988 to the National FFA Organization to represent the growing diversity of agriculture. Today, almost half a million student members are engaged in a wide range of agricultural education activities, leading to over 300 career opportunities in the food, fiber, and natural resources industry. Student success remains the primary mission of FFA.
The National FFA Organization is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
The New Mexico FFA has 78 chapters and over 4,000 members. The New Mexico FFA website includes a calendar of events.
