Learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live, living to serve
Montana FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
“Future Farmers of America” was founded by a group of young farmers at the National level in 1928. Their mission was to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population. They taught us that agriculture is more than planting and harvesting – it’s a science, it’s a business, and it’s an art.
Montana FFA was founded in 1930 with 26 charter chapters and 443 members. FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. The Montana FFA is a three-legged organization encompassing the Association, Foundation, and Alumni that work together to allow Montana FFA members to thrive, succeed, and be educated in the agriculture industry.
In 1988, the official name of the organization was changed from “Future Farmers of America” to “National FFA Organization” to reflect the growing diversity of agriculture. Today we are still the Future Farmers of America, but we are the Future Biologists, Future Chemists, Future Veterinarians, Future Engineers, and Future Entrepreneurs of America too.

The Montana FFA Association consists of the State FFA Advisor, Montana FFA State Officer team, and Montana agriculture teachers. They work together to ensure that our members are achieving career success. Through our various programs and events, members have multiple opportunities to learn and apply leadership, life, and career skills. Whether that opportunity is showing livestock, creating a marketing plan, or identifying crops; there is constant growth in our member’s knowledge and experience within the agriculture industry.
The Montana FFA Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit whose primary purpose is to fund the Montana FFA Association. The Foundation was formed in 1998 with a mission to cultivate partnerships, promote awareness and secure resources to enhance Agricultural Education and the Montana FFA Association. The Foundation provides opportunities for companies, organizations, and individuals to provide financial resources and support to Montana FFA and agriculture education.
The Montana FFA Alumni and Supporters is our volunteer base of past members, parents, and other supporters. Alumni and supporters can often be found filling volunteer needs such as judging events, setting up or taking down events, coordinating needs, and providing scholarship support to FFA members and the Foundation.
