From its beginnings in 1928 as the Future Farmers of America, the National FFA Organization currently reaches out to all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. From urban to rural schools, FFA is committed to developing character and leadership skills and preparing members for a lifetime of success in one of the 300 careers in agriculture.
FFA members are success-oriented students who are driven to achieve their goals and be the leaders of tomorrow. They stand out by recognizing the importance of being active in their schools and communities and are urged to step up when volunteers are sought, friendship is needed and leadership is required.
Through classroom instruction and hands-on learning, agricultural education and FFA are making a positive difference for members every day. FFA members have opportunities to attend leadership contests, develop a supervised agricultural experience project, learn life skills and serve their communities with civic engagement. FFA members are our future engineers, scientists, teachers and producers. One of every five Americans is employed in the food, fiber and natural resources industries of agriculture. The Worth County Middle School FFA Chapter has 100 active members. While membership on the national level is over 550,000 strong, Georgia has 285 Chapters and is currently third in membership with over 34,000 members. National FFA Week is sponsored by Tractor Supply Co. as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.
