About Us

What is FFA? (from FFA.org)

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

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

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. It is one of the three components of agricultural education.

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

What does FFA stand for?

Here at Allentown FFA when asked this question our response is that the National FFA Organization is just that, the National FFA. The lettering refers to the official name change which occurred in 1988 to "reflect the growing diversity in agriculture". 

But sometimes using the FFA is not enough to explain who we are and what we do, so we will say FFA is:

Future For Agriculture is the Future For All.

About Allentown FFA

Allentown FFA began as part of the Upper Freehold Regional School District in 1936. Students enrolled in the Agricultural Science Program at AHS are automatically granted membership in our program. FFA is one of the three components of Agricultural Science Education. Students learn about topics in the classroom and laboratory, apply that knowledge to their Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) program, and then develop leadership skills through the FFA.
