FFA Curriculum

October 30, 2015

NASHVILLE,Ten (RFDTV) With more than 7,700 FFA chapters, it’s a mountainous task to create curriculum that is engaging, educational and consistent across the country.   Part of that process falls on the organization’s 5-regional staffs, who collaborate, and build programs that are as diverse, and full of promise as each FFA member.

“We work with everything from our degree program Greenhand, Chapter, State, American, Discovery Degree, all the way through the awards, the Career Development Events, the leadership programs,” says Kevin Keith.

The Career Development Events, or CDE’s, give members two dozen areas of study ranging from animal science or horticulture to communications. The state winners move on to the national contest. In addition to managing the CDE’s the regional staff members also focus their attention on alumni development. Those supporters value agriculture education and want to see their own local chapters and members excel.  

“Our staff attend the alumni development conferences and the regional development conferences and provide workshops,” says Keith.

The FFA relies on alumni to garner support from their local communities, raise funds for chapter activities and scholarships, and assist at leadership camps and conferences. More than 60,000 FFA members, advisors and guests are attending the National FFA Convention and expo.   The event also includes the annual meeting for the National FFA Alumni Organization. The convention and expo runs through Saturday.
