High-quality leadership experiences are one of the FFA trademarks. Each year the National FFA Organization coordinates an International Leadership Seminar for State Officers (ILSSO). This program is an enrichment opportunity for current state FFA officers who wish to broaden their horizons by witnessing agriculture and cultural traditions while traveling abroad.
ILSSO participants develop a global perspective and become more culturally aware of the diversity in agriculture around the world and helps ensure that our state leaders have a diverse set of skills - and a working knowledge of what agriculture and trade looks like on the international level.
Has travel and an appreciation for the global agriculture industry been important to you? Would you consider making a tax-deductible donation via the Kansas FFA Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 organization to help off-set costs associated with participating in this program?
From now through November 1, I will be accepting contributions for our January 2-16, 2019, ILSSO trip to South Africa. Or they can be made online at https://ksffafoundation.givingfuel.com/2019-illso
