FFA Global programs give students and teachers the opportunity to explore the different agricultural practices and cultures in countries around the world.
Those who participate in global programs:
- Develop a broader perspective as they become more culturally aware.
- Gain a greater understanding of an ever-changing global marketplace.
- Learn about internship and employment opportunities from global industry leaders.
- Develop friendships with diverse groups of people who share a common interest in agriculture.
Current and past state officers are invited to participate in the ILSSO.
The 16 American Star Finalists and one national proficiency award finalist in each proficiency award area are eligible to participate in this travel experience.
