The founders and team within AgCareers.com have worked very hard to establish strong and synergistic relationships with industry organizations and associations from the start of the business. One such relationships is with the National FFA Organization. AgCareers.com is proud to be the “Strategic Career Success Partner” of the National FFA Organization and its Foundation. Our relationship allows the 610,000+ students and 10,000+ teachers/FFA advisors access to real career opportunities and internships on demand. The National FFA Organization is a systematic education and experience platform for young people to identify their life passion and develop the necessary skills to achieve their career goals. More specifically, the National FFA Organization is an integral part of agricultural education by helping make classroom instruction come to life through realistic, hands-on applications. FFA members embrace concepts taught in agricultural classrooms nationwide, build valuable skills through hands-on experiential learning and each year demonstrate their proficiencies in competitions that showcase real-world agricultural skills. 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. Today’s FFA has evolved in response to expanded opportunities available in agriculture and its needs to hire skilled and competent employees for more than 300 careers. The organization helps students prepare for careers in business, marketing, science, communications, education, horticulture, production, natural resources, forestry, and many other diverse fields.
The National FFA Organization and Foundation allows and invites companies, associations, and individuals opportunities to provide financial contributions and be a part of the ever important journey of keeping a viable pipeline of talent for the agriculture industry. The upcoming FFA Convention and Expo will host 60,000+ students, teachers, and industry professionals.
