Advocate and Support Agricultural Education    

Through their commitment to FFA and Agricultural Education, FFA Alumni and Boosters Programs help guide students in their communities down the path to success.

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 Virginia FFA Convention and other personal development programs.

Virginia FFA Alumni and Booster programs across the state had more than 6,655 members and thousands of local boosters members in 29 nationally recognized affiliates. Alumni/ Booster programs raise tens of thousands of dollars for local youth Agricultural Education 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 work load, provide valuable resources and give Agricultural Education programs much needed guidance and support.

About the Alumni & Boosters  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. Through our commitment to FFA and Agricultural Education, FFA Alumni help guide students in their communities down the path to success.

How to Join  Membership in local Alumni and/or Boosters programs is open to anyone who is interested in supporting and promoting agriculture, agricultural education and the FFA on the local, state and national level. If you are proud of FFA and want to help local FFA members acquire knowledge and experience from agricultural education and FFA activities – the FFA Alumni is for you!
