State FFA officers from around the country are heading to South Africa this January to develop a global perspective of agriculture, people and culture.
The International Leadership Seminar for State Officers (ILSSO) – set for January 4–16 – challenges participants to identify goals for growth and then to develop a plan to achieve those aims. Participants will visit South African farms and agribusinesses, share in the local culture and develop themselves as culturally-aware students. Support for this experience is provided by John Deere and Bunge.
Stay tuned below for highlights from the participants, highlighted on Twitter and Instagram with hashtag #ILSSO19.
