North Carolina Future Farmers of America Association: Since 1929


FFA Values

FFA Mission

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.

FFA Vision

The FFA envisions a future in which all agricultural education students will discover their passion in life and build on that insight to chart the course for their educational, career and personal future.

FFA Motto

The motto gives members twelve short words to live by as they experience opportunities in the organization.

  • Learning to Do
  • Doing to Learn
  • Earning to Live
  • Living to Serve

FFA Salute

The Pledge of Allegiance is the official salute of the FFA Organization. To properly conduct the salute, face the United States flag, place the right hand over the left part of the chest, and holding it there, repeat the following pledge:

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

NOTE: Repeat the pledge as it is punctuated. There is no comma or pause following the word "nation."

The salute should always be used in the official closing ceremony for meetings and at other FFA gatherings. At the conclusion of the pledge, the hand should be dropped to the side and the members should again face the president's station.
