Greenhand Leadership Conference (Freshman)
This conference introduces students to the benefits and opportunities in agricultural education, including Supervised Agricultural Experiences and FFA. The overall outcome of this conference is for students to get hooked on the opportunities available to them in the FFA. Students discover the three pillars to success (Me, We, Serve) and how those pillars relate to the overall foundation of the FFA. The students will identify individual strengths they bring to a group, discover how to use those strengths while working with others, and where they can take those strengths beyond the conference experience. Students will be engaged as they leave, ready to take on opportunities the FFA has to offer and continue to grow and develop as a student leader. This year Brentwood FFA will take 18 freshman to Petaluma for this one day conference on September 25th! Applications are out on September 1st and will close on September 8th! Please reach out to an advisor if there are any questions!
