The “Growing Quality: National FFA Alumni Quality Program Guide” is designed to be utilized by FFA Alumni members in support of local teacher(s), administrations, community partners, advisory committees and/or external stakeholders to conduct an evaluation of the local FFA Alumni member program and develop clear goals and objectives for program improvement.
The “Growing Quality: National FFA Alumni Quality Program Guide” is a result of a need to provide a consistent delivery of high-quality FFA Alumni programs across the nation. Local FFA Alumni members are tasked with supporting local agricultural education programs, FFA chapters, teachers and students. Through FFA Alumni, supporters in the community are able to be actively engaged in developing, supporting, strengthening and sustaining agricultural education and FFA in their school(s). FFA Alumni generally focus their work into five categories: business operations for FFA Alumni, FFA Alumni member development, advocacy for agricultural education, agricultural education/FFA program development and student development. Activities in each of these areas ensure that a local member is creating a balance in the services, programs and events conducted throughout the year.
