The purpose of President’s Circle is to enhance supporters leadership skills and make a positive difference for Minnesota agriculture. The program focuses on mentor leadership, strategic planning, conflict resolution and teamwork. A systematic, statewide leadership enhancement program. 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. The goal of the President’s Circle is to cultivate those leadership skills already rooted within former FFA members and supporters.
