In 2024, the Ohio FFA Association will offer two distinctly different leadership conferences for its members. Both conferences will be held concurrently.
Mission Conference – This conference is designed for 7th through 10th-grade students.
The journey of leadership begins with self-discovery. Students at the Mission Conference explore what makes them unique and learn strategies to become a more confident and capable version of themselves. We explore values, strengths, decision-making skills and self-confidence. The Mission Conference culminates in students developing their personal mission statement.
Impact Conference – This conference is designed for 11th and 12th-grade students.
Leaders make an impact on their communities that lives on long after they leave. The Impact Conference empowers students to define what their impact will be. Students will explore challenges facing their communities and strategies they can deploy to help. In addition, students will explore their values, practice innovative thinking and determine how they can inspire others. The Impact Conference culminates in students developing an Impact Plan to create change in their local community.
