  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.
