A Legacy of Leadership
The Texas FFA Foundation provides Texas FFA members and agricultural science teachers next-level leadership development opportunities through scholarships, service programs, and professional networks. The Living to Serve platform creates young leaders of today and the dynamic influencers of tomorrow.
Foundation Ambassador Program
The Ambassador program is a hands-on leadership development program for selected students. During the Texas FFA Convention, the Foundation Ambassadors serve as the hosts to our special guests, sponsors, and dignitaries. The foundation ambassadors become the face and the voice of the Texas FFA.
The LEAD Experience connects our teachers to sponsors, key Texas decision / policy makers as well as other stakeholders empowering them with practical, timely and applicable knowledge which can be taken back to students, communities and shared with their peers. The visits, camaraderie, and opportunity to grow enhanced professional networks and leadership skills – pushing participants towards continued career success.
- Registration for the 2022 Legislative LEAD for Texas FFA Members can be completed in the Online Roster Management System.
The LEAD Experience empowers teachers with a better understanding of the Texas FFA Foundation and encourages them to pursue their calling with excellence by showing them the appreciation they deserve. During the week-long LEAD Experience held in June, teachers travel over 1,000 miles to visit approximately 15 locations and hear from more than 50 presenters.
All Texas agricultural science teachers are offered this expense-free experience - with no cap on attendance. Regionally, throughout the year, this two-day educational experience at the State Capitol is geared towards empowering teachers to better understand and engage with their elected officials in legislative, government and educational discussions.
Like the Teachers LEAD program, this student program thats held in November, connects participants to business, organizational and industry leaders in agriculture. This opportunity for members to gain exposure to high-caliber mentors is an important step in the development of their leadership skills, and provides a unqiue platform for them to get a glimpse into their future as leaders in the industry.
