Growing Leaders, Building Communities, & Strengthening Agriculture
The FFA Alumni is designed to formally utilize the cooperation of the community to support agricultural education and the FFA. An FFA Alumni affiliate or group is a tool for the local FFA chapter in providing resources, whether that is monetary, human or other resources as needed.
The National FFA Alumni & Supporters develops programs and provides leadership for the state association. The Ohio FFA Alumni provides this same criteria at the local Affiliate level throughout Ohio.
As Volunteers and Supporters of Agriculture Education and the FFA Organization, you did not have to be a former FFA member or wear the blue corduroy jacket. The FFA Alumni is open to anyone who desires to support Agriculture and the FFA.
To provide a structure to mobilize and empower community volunteers to support and assist agricultural education programs in providing quality educational experiences. FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
The vision of the Ohio and National FFA Alumni & Supporters is a world where people and communities can grow and develop to their fullest potential. 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.
Membership is open to anyone who supports or volunteers for FFA, including former active members, collegiate and honorary members, present and former professional agricultural educators, parents of FFA members, and others interested in and supportive of FFA. As a member you will take an active part in building your community at the local, state, and national level. Your commitment helps ensure the continued success of Ohio’s and America’s premier leadership organization.
