How to Join

The FFA is an integral part agricultural education in Tennessee. To join the FFA, you must be enrolled in an agricultural education course in your local high school. Contact your school's counselor or agricultural education instructor to enroll in agricultural education and join the FFA.

Start a New Chapter

If your school does not have an agricultural education program, take steps to open a program in your school. In order to accomplish this task, we strongly recommend that you contact the staff of the Tennessee FFA Association to express your interest and ask for assistance on regulations, requirements and resources for planning a new program. The agricultural educators at MTSU, TSU, TTU, UTK and UTM can also be helpful.
