About the Organization

Chartered by National FFA in January of 1929, the Maryland FFA Association is the oldest of the five Career and Technology Student Organizations operated within Maryland public schools. With a federal charter, FFA is an integral part of 7-12 grade agricultural education. 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. FFA was formerly known as Future Farmers of America.
