FFA returns to Indianapolis this October, and we couldn’t do it without the help of our gracious, kind and supportive local volunteers!

The 89th National FFA Convention & Expo is a valuable, worthwhile and enriching experience for our more than 60,000 FFA attendees! While in Indianapolis, FFA members and other supporters from around the country will learn about careers in agriculture, compete for scholarships and awards, meet with industry leaders, volunteer in the Indianapolis community and learn skills they can take back to their home FFA chapter.

We’re looking for people who can monitor events, assist with directions, work information booths and more! Click here for more details and to sign up for shifts!

FFA Member Volunteer Opportunities The National FFA Convention & Expo is about more than the experience for FFA members – it’s also about the opportunity to serve.
