FFA Forms Strategic Alliance

FFA Forms Strategic Alliance

Groups will work together to advance agriculture education.

The National FFA Organization and National FFA Foundation have entered into a new, strategic alliance with USDA and National Council for Agricultural Education. Under the partnership the four entities will work toward the common goals of advancing agriculture education and increasing awareness about the importance of agriculture through assuring international competitiveness and the sustainability of the industry by creating a highly prepared workforce.

Under the agreement, FFA will work with USDA to identify needs and interests of agriculture teachers, students, communities, farmers, agribusiness and related groups. Also, FFA will collaborate with other USDA programs, such as 4-H and Agriculture in the Classroom, to extend efforts to educate and inform students about agriculture and promote awareness of career opportunities within the agriculture industry. The National FFA Foundation will secure funding for collaborative projects.

The National Council for Agricultural Education will work to bolster in-service education opportunities, develop forward-thinking instructional materials designed for agriculture teachers to utilize in their classrooms and help identify today's needs and interests of agriculture teachers, students, farmers, agribusiness leaders and communities in general.
