Why Should I Join The FFA?
"What is the FFA?"

The FFA is a dynamic youth organization within agricultural education that changes lives and prepares students for premier leadership, personal growth and career success.  Today, almost half a million student members are engaged in a wide range of agricultural education activities, leading to over 300 career opportunities in the food, fiber and natural resources industry. Students success remains the primary mission of the FFA.

"Why should I become a member of the Bellaire FFA Chapter?"

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

The FFA develops members’ potential and helps them discover their talent through hands-on experience, which gives 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.  The FFA results in tangible rewards! 

Premier Leadership

None of us are born leaders, but the Bellaire FFA can help you become one.  FFA members strengthen their public speaking ability, improve their decision-making skills, learn to manage their time, and discover how to respect themselves and gain respect from others.  Premier leadership is developed throughout the FFA program – chapter meetings, camps, conventions, leadership conferences/workshops, officer training, and leadership development events.

Personal Growth

The Bellaire FFA provides its members the opportunity to grow personally through such programs as the Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE), membership degrees, proficiency awards, agriscience fairs, community service, and scholarships to name a few.

Through the SAE program, many FFA members start their own businesses or work for an agricultural company throughout high school.  They learn skills such as budgeting, communication, responsibility, networking, and resource management.  The experience gained puts FFA members way ahead of their classmates when it comes to applying for college or being hired for the job.

And speaking of college, Bellaire FFA members have the opportunity to earn agricultural specific scholarships from such donors as the San Antonio Livestock Exposition, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, National FFA Organization, Texas FFA Foundation,  and many more.

Career Success

Do you know what you want to do after you finish school?  FFA can help you develop the skills you need to get there.  Don’t have a clue?  FFA can assist you in finding out which of agriculture’s 300 exciting career options match your interests and skills. 

For students who ask their teachers, “When will I ever use this in the real world?” Career Development Events (CDE) are the answer.  The events are designed to help prepare members for a career in agriculture.  Classroom instruction comes alive as members demonstrate their skills in a competitive setting.  The FFA offers so many opportunities for competition at the chapter, district, area, state and national levels, you can hardly avoid being a winner!
