The Future Awaits! 

What does the future hold? What happens after high school? How can I continue to improve as an individual? Who can help me? What is my life's purpose? What do I have to look forward to? 

We will strive to answer these questions and many others as seniors embark on the Change Makers Summit: The Future Awaits! With graduation just around the corner and futures becoming the present, it is critical to have the conversations now that will help seniors find ways to continue to serve, use the skills they have gained and fulfill their life's purpose after leaving the blue and gold. We will identify the specific skills each individual has gained from the FFA/Ag Education and create a career plan that highlights how those skills will help them find success. This will be amplified by outlining specific service projects seniors can accomplish now in their current communities or as a way to get connected to the communities they are moving to. Seniors will leave knowing how capable, valuable and marketable they are while being motivated to live a life of service.

Resources

Beginning in the early 20th century in California, agricultural education has a long tradition of preparing students for rigorous, satisfying careers both within and outside of the industry. As a school-based learning program, agricultural education operates as a unit within the California Department of Education and is written into the state’s legislative education code.

About

Rich in history with an eye toward the future, California’s school-based agricultural education program seeks to prepare all students for satisfying careers in and outside of the agriculture industry. The multi-faceted approach to growing the whole person includes a focus on character and interpersonal skill development, technical acumen and critical thinking capabilities.

 

Events

From personal growth to career skill enhancement, the focus of California’s agricultural education events is always on the experiential development of the student. With activities ranging from local to national, the statewide organization offers a number of premier events each year that are suited to best meet the interests of an ever-diversifying student population.
