Enhancing Leadership Opportunities
The Foundation AMBASSADORS serve as “face to face” hosts for special guests, sponsors and dignitaries on behalf of the Texas FFA during the largest youth led convention in Texas. Candidates apply through a competitive application process, with emphasis on FFA involvement, individual accomplishments and community service. AMBASSADORS receive extensive training to prepare them for their week of service. Each student AMBASSADOR is assigned to a “VIP” serving as their respective agricultural science / FFA host for the week. In addition, the AMBASSADORS have a unique opportunity of experiencing firsthand the behind the scene complexities of convention week.
