about illinois ffa

Illinois FFA is a dynamic youth organization that changes lives and prepares members for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.

Illinois FFA develops members’ potential and helps them discover their talent through hands-on experiences, which give members the tools to achieve real-world success.

FFA is not just for students who want to be production farmers; FFA also welcomes members who aspire to careers as teachers, doctors, scientists, business owners and more. Illinois FFA members are future chemists, veterinarians, government officials, entrepreneurs, bankers, international business leaders, teachers and premier professionals in many career fields.  

FFA is an intracurricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership.

The official name of the organization is the Illinois Association FFA. The letters “FFA” stand for Future Farmers of America. These letters are a part of our history and our heritage that will never change.


Our members live our FFA motto: Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live and Living to Serve. FFA members rise to the challenge of service embracing members of all walks of life united through FFA.
