Future Farmers of America
In 1928, 33 farm boys met in a Kansas City hotel to discuss the future of farming in America. Known as the Future Farmers of America, the organization they founded provided support for agricultural education and leadership training for high school students. 
 
After granting charters in 48 states across the U.S., the National FFA Foundation was established in 1944. Four years later, the FFA participated in an international exchange program with the Young Farmers Club of Great Britain. Today, the FFA sends more than 350 students to 25 countries annually to share knowledge and promote agricultural careers.
