Each year, FFA members from all over the United States travel to Washington, D.C. to attend the Washington Leadership Conference (WLC).

During the five-day event, attendees learn how to become effective leaders by teaching them to know their purpose, value people, take action, and serve others.

FFA members leave WLC with the knowledge and the confidence to act in ways that help their schools, community, and their country.

Read about the experiences of past WLC participants to learn more.

This is no ordinary leadership experience. You will spend a week putting these skills into practice as you make new friends from across the United States and tour our nation's capital. This action-packed week will help you gain self-confidence and leadership skills to take back to your FFA chapter and share with other members.

WLC Civic Engagement Activity

The capstone event of the Washington Leadership Conference is the civic engagement activity, where participants apply what they have learned at the conference to a real, hands-on service activity.

FFA Advisors: WLC is for you, too!

The Washington Leadership Conference isn't just for students. It’s an adventure for advisors, too! The WLC advisor program will motivate, excite and energize you. It's an incredible opportunity to interact and share valuable ideas with other FFA advisors from across the United States.

The advisor program includes meals at the hotel.  However, if you would like to explore options around the hotel click here for options.
