Junior FFA Leader
Gunter FFA Chapter activities and programs concentrate on three areas of the FFA mission statement: premier leadership, personal growth and career success.
Gunter FFA uses agricultural education to create real-world success. The program is part of a three-part model of education that consists of classroom instruction, supervised agricultural experiences and the FFA. Classroom agricultural education is applied to hands-on learning opportunities called supervised agricultural experiences (SAEs). SAEs include activities such as starting a business, working for an established company or working in production agriculture. The FFA provides members the opportunity for leadership experience and career development while reinforcing agricultural education through competitions, scholarships and personal opportunities for involvement.
Agricultural teachers are advisors to the local FFA chapter, which students join. These FFA chapters are managed on a local, state and national level. Each chapter’s program of activities is designed with the needs of the students in mind. Gunter FFA activities vary greatly, but are based on a well-integrated curriculum.
