Agricultural Education/FFA Program Development

The role of a local FFA Alumni affiliate is to support the local agricultural instructor(s). We strive to offer support to the teacher in all areas of the three circle model including classroom/laboratory instruction, students’ supervised agricultural experiences and FFA activities. The local instructor(s) may call upon the FFA Alumni to assist with: student recruitment and retention; collaborative activities between the students and FFA Alumni; teacher assistance both in and out of the classroom; financial resources for the program.

The following Measurement Statements outline those identified areas of a quality FFA Alumni program. Each Measurement Statement is followed by a series of quality indicators/questions/examples which further define or assess the measurement statement. The sum of the indicators scores serve as a ranking and determine if the measurement statement has been met. The sum of the indicator scores must reach the identified criteria score for meeting the standard or standard statement.
