Mission and Vision

“At the National FFA Center, being committed to diversity means holding each other accountable and pushing ourselves to do more in serving FFA members. That’s why we’re building an empowered and more inclusive organization. At times, we have to stand for what’s right, but our journey is an exciting, challenging and worthy one. I invite our members, teachers, state leaders and supporters to embrace this inclusive spirit and help us reach every student, in every classroom, every day.”

--W. Dwight Armstrong, Ph.D.,National FFA Organization Chief Executive Officer

We Believe...

  • As different as we are, we all desire the same. No matter who we choose to love, how big our bank account, how light or dark our skin, who we vote for, how old or young, where we grew up, how strong our accent or what language we speak, we have a need for the same thing. We all want a sense of belonging. We all want a place where we are respected, connected and affirmed.

Our Vision

  • To build an empowered community and more inclusive organization where every person is respected, connected and affirmed.

Our Opportunity

  • Deliver national programs that serve as a model in removing barriers and creating opportunities for success for every student, every day, in every classroom.
  • To intentionally include National FFA’s historically underserved and underrepresented communities.

The National FFA Organization affirms its belief in the value of all human beings and seeks diversity in its membership, leadership and staff as an equal opportunity employer. Discrimination against any person on the basis of race, religion, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, veteran or marital status, education or experience background is prohibited.
