  16. Definition of Agricultural, Food & Natural Resources Education for New Jersey

    Definition of Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources Education
    For New Jersey
    “Agricultural Education prepares people for careers and professional leadership in
    production, processing, marketing, and distribution of agricultural products, and
    for related careers in plant and animal technology (including aquatic life),
    economics, education, mechanics and engineering, natural resources and
    environmental technology, politics and sociology, and international relations and
    trade.”

    Definition of Supervised Agricultural Experience – SAE
    SAE programs are "Planned, documented, practical activities conducted outside
    of the classroom/laboratory instruction time in which students develop and
    apply agricultural knowledge and skills."

    These experiences (Exploratory, Research/Experimentation and Analysis,
    Placement, and Ownership/Entrepreneurship) are individualized to meet the needs
    of a diverse student clientele, and they are supervised by teachers, employers,
    parents/guardians, and/or other adults who assist students in achieving their
    objectives.

    FFA Mission Statement:
    FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their
    potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through
    agricultural education.
