• The FFA is not a "club." It is one of three integral components of an agricultural education program: classroom instruction, supervised agricultural experience and life skills.  Students between the ages of 12 and 21 who are enrolled in an agricultural education course are eligible for membership. Your local school system must offer agricultural instruction and have an active FFA chapter for you to join.
    The FFA Organization is the leadership development program for students of agricultural science and technology programs.  FFA programs are intended to be applied activities related to the classroom and laboratory instructional programs.  Thus, membership guidelines should reflect this philosophy and support enrollment in agricultural science courses.
    The Texas Junior FFA is a statewide organization with the purpose of enhancing and encouraging the education of younger students who are interested in the future of the agricultural industry.  The organization of a Junior FFA chapter is entirely optional, with the need of such an organization to be determined by the local FFA chapter.
    Membership in the Texas Junior FFA is open to students in grades where agricultural science courses are not offered.  Junior FFA members must be at least eight years old and in the third grade.  Please read Junior FFA Policy for specific details regarding membership and eligibility.
    Ponder FFA is a very active FFA chapter.  Students are given the opportunities to experience a variety of different activities, including Leadership Development Events, Career Development Events, Stock Show, Conventions and Meetings. 
    To be active in the Ponder FFA chapter Dues must be paid in order to participate.  Dues information will be coming and will be due no later than October 15th.
