The newly-launched Snohomish Valley FFA Alumni Association provides leadership support and career guidance to students enrolled in agricultural education in the Snohomish Valley. Our association is comprised of FFA alumni, local businesses and individuals who are helping to build relationships between the local community and farms by supporting the next generation of American farmers.
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 National FFA Organization is the largest student-run organization in the country and prepares students with an interest in science, business, and technology.
Our chapter fosters student participation in local area events and competitions, as well as supports the AG Science programs at both Snohomish and Glacier Peak High Schools. These sister programs provide integral education to students on the vital subjects of agriculture, food and natural resources in a hands-on learning environment. Through these subjects, agricultural educators help broaden students’ skill sets in the areas of science, math, communications, leadership, management and technology.
We also lend our expertise to establish connections for internships and agricultural tours, as well as help fundraise for special projects and to send students to the state FFA Convention. Other exciting new programs are in the works: We are hoping to help launch a floral design class at Snohomish High School in 2018. Join us today!
