Through Texas FFA leadership development opportunities, members begin to discover their unique talents, values, and ambitions. Programs provide members with the opportunity to travel, discover careers in agriculture, and develop leadership skills.

JumpSTART: A Texas FFA Welcome for New Chapters      
One way to improve your newly started chapter is to participate in the Jump START Academy where Successful Teams Achieve Results Together. This conference was created to help students “jump start” their newly chartered FFA chapters and begin a legacy that will live on in their community for years to come. This program is only for new chapters, and though it is not required, it is highly encouraged.

Greenhand Leadership Conference: A Premier Leadership Curriculum      
A Greenhand Leadership Conference curriculum is provided by the Texas FFA Association and is available to areas for reference, use as a template, or direct implementation. The curriculum outlines tactics, techniques, and procedures for the development and completion of an effective Greenhand leadership event.

Made For Excellence: A Personal Growth Experience      
Personal development starts with the individual. This program targets self-discovery of talents, strengths, interests and personal character, which are all emphasized as the individual is channeled to discover their passion in life. This conference focuses on "ME: one's personal skills and development of the ability to be successful."

Officership: A Premier Leadership Experience      

The Officership program focuses on the more advanced aspects of leadership through service. This program is designed for students who are pursing the State Degree and have an expressed interest in the more advanced concepts of Texas FFA leadership. The program is not restricted to only those who hold an office, but is for those who are seeking a more in-depth analysis of leadership concepts, principles and practices.

State Leadership Conference: An Area Officer Proving Ground      
State Leadership Conference is the Texas FFA State Officer-administered leadership conference for area officers, hosted in the month of June. Area officers are immersed in a four-day leadership training in which they are given the concepts and the skill sets to effectively serve as an area officer. From facilitation to the committee process, State Leadership Conference has been a long-standing pillar of Texas FFA leadership development.

Ethical Leadership Fellows      

The Texas FFA Ethical Leadership Fellows program is an elite training opportunity for a “values and ethics” driven curriculum development, in cooperation with Soderquist Leadership. The Ethical Leadership Fellows program is a nomination driven process selecting a past member from one of the premier programs of the State FFA Officers, the Ford Leadership Scholars, and the Texas FFA Foundation Ambassadors.

Ford Leadership Scholars      
Texas FFA Ford Leadership Scholars is a community service driven, professional development program designed as a partnership between the Texas FFA Association, the Texas FFA Foundation, and Ford Motor Company. This program revolves around six leadership tenants: vision, action, awareness, relationships, character, and continuous improvement. Deemed the most rigorous of curriculums in the Texas FFA leadership catalog, the Ford Leadership Scholars program pushes students to their leadership limits to the point that they understand success in terms of one thing: sustainable results.
