Part of the Integrated Leadership Development continuum for the California Association, Future Farmers of America, the program helps FFA members improve their leadership skills and prepare for leadership roles in their chapters, communities and future careers. Students attended interactive sessions on developing authentic leadership, understanding personal strengths and developing a new vision as advocates for the Agriculture Industry.
Typically, sophomore students attend the Made For Excellence Conference where the program’s focus is developing the foundation of the students leadership skills and having them identify their strengths and passions. The Advanced Leadership Academy is attended by high school juniors and seniors and their focus is how to develop a new vision for the agriculture industry by developing a vision plan that helps connect the consumers to the producers within their communities.
These FFA members are a part of the over 2,000 students who will attend the conferences this winter in six locations throughout California.
California Future Farmers of America provides agricultural education to more than 70,000 student members in grades nine through 12 who belong to one of more than 300 local FFA chapters throughout the state.
