What is FFA?
FFA is the premier youth organization preparing members for leadership and careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture. The letters “FFA” stand for Future Farmers of America. These letters are a part of our history and our heritage that will never change. But FFA is not just for students who want to be production farmers; FFA also welcomes members who aspire to careers as teachers, doctors, scientists, business owners and more. For this reason, the name of the organization was updated in 1988 after a vote of national convention delegates to reflect the growing diversity and new opportunities in the industry of agriculture.

How can students see what you are doing?
Our Chapter can be reached through our website and you can follow us on our Facebook Page which is for current and former FFA members, as well as supporters to stay up to speed on happenings and competitions that the Rapid City FFA is participating in.
