The Agriculture Department and the FFA chapter are an integral part of the Career Technical Education program featured at Del Oro High School.  We offer both agricultural mechanics and sciences for students interested in gaining employable skills, welding certifications, raising livestock, learning about food production systems or accessing 
leadership opportunities.  The welding and machine shop is home to PlasmaCAM technology, various welding techniques, metal fabrication projects and small engine repair.  The agriscience program utilizes a unique school farm facility that encourages hands-on learning in both life and physical science as it relates to sustainable agricultural food production practices.  The Del Oro FFA chapter, an official chapter of the National FFA Organization, offers a unique leadership program that encourages students to work with others in their community and school, develop their public speaking abilities, compete in specialized content areas of agriculture, and complete a hands-on agriculture experience project.

What is FFA?

The official name of the organization is the National FFA Organization.

The letters “FFA” stand for Future Farmers of America. These letters are a part of our history and our heritage that will never change. But FFA is not just for students who want to be production farmers; FFA also welcomes members who aspire to careers as teachers, doctors, scientists, business owners and more. For this reason, the name of the organization was updated in 1988 after a vote of national convention delegates to reflect the growing diversity and new opportunities in the industry of agriculture.

Today, the National FFA Organization remains committed to the individual student, providing a path to achievement in premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.

FFA continues to help the next generation rise up to meet those challenges by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of agricultural career pathways. So today, we are still the Future Farmers of America. But, we are the Future Biologists, Future Chemists, Future Veterinarians, Future Engineers and Future Entrepreneurs of America, too.
