Support Agricultural Education
First established in 1969, alumni and booster programs provide parents, former members and those with a vested interest in agriculture and youth development with opportunities to assist with raising funds, recruitment, coordinating events and supporting FFA programs.
An individual does not need to have worn the blue jacket to join the Alumni and support Agricultural Education. FFA relies on members of Alumni programs for help with recruiting students and raising funds for chapter activities and scholarships. FFA Alumni also assist at local FFA events, contests and conferences, the California FFA Conference and other personal development programs.
The Alumni Association and Boosters programs support and advocate for Ag Education and FFA through gifts of: Time, Talent, and Financial Resources.
Alumni affiliates play a key role in today’s Agricultural Education community. An effective FFA Alumni affiliate of strong volunteers will allow teachers to "take the reins" in their classroom and allow their supporters to be charged with fundraising, advocacy and more. Affiliates reduce the workload, provide valuable resources and give Agricultural Education programs much needed guidance and support.
With the increased diversity of agricultural education programs, it is becoming more difficult for advisors/teachers to keep up with all the additional activities. Former FFA members and interested adults are a natural resource of help and support. Focus is on new technology in agriculture and agribusiness, therefore it is important to involve all types of people in your community.
The California FFA Alumni Council is composed of four board officers and a consultant/advisor.
For information regarding the members of the Foundation Board of Directors, please see the accordion below.
Working with the National FFA Alumni Association, the California FFA Alumni strives to implement alumni groups in each of California's local FFA programs.
