Days of Service

During our annual State FFA Convention, Louisiana FFA members give back to the host city by participating in our Days of Service.

The 2018 Day of Service registration is include with the convention registration HERE.

Louisiana FFA is seeking students and teachers from across the state to uphold the gold standards that our organization is known for by taking part in one of the largest civic engagement events ever held within Louisiana FFA. During the Louisiana FFA State Convention & Expo, one of the premier activities for young leaders to participate in is the annual Louisiana FFA Day of Service. The Day of Service will have a huge impact on the city of Alexandria and the entire state of Louisiana. While participating, FFA members will provide service to the community through a number of partnerships and FFA supporters. There are numerous opportunities for students to volunteer in the community.

A complimentary T-shirt will be provided for all participants!

 

These service projects have been generously funded by the National FFA Foundation and these sponsors:

City Beautification Project

Situated in the heart of downtown and near city hall, Alexander Fulton Mini Park serves primarily as an urban gathering space. It is an ideal location for outdoor lunches and contains raised turf panels in one corner plaza for small concerts and other outdoor gatherings. Students will work in the mini park and the surrounding downtown area by replacing existing trees, setting up seating areas, and landscaping existing plant bedding areas.
