As a premier youth leadership organization, FFA is charged with training members in technical agricultural skills and developing their leadership skills. Every year more than half a million members take advantage of FFA programs. But why is FFA successful and why do we do it? From the FFA Creed:
Because we believe in the future of agriculture.
Because we believe in the joys and discomforts of agricultural life.
Because we believe in leadership from ourselves and respect from others.
Because we believe in less need for charity and more of it when needed.
Because we believe that American agriculture will hold true to the best traditions of our national life.
Author Simon Sinek, explains this phenomenon of the organization’s success.
