Welcome to the Camp Verde Agriscience, FFA and PALS portal!
About Mission: 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. Motto: Learning to do, Doing to learn, Earning to live, Living to serve. Three Component Model Picture (on link below) and this description: FFA is not extracurricular! The program is part of a three-part model of education that consists of classroom instruction, supervised agricultural experiences and the FFA. Classroom agricultural education is applied to hands-on learning opportunities called supervised agricultural experiences (SAEs). SAEs include activities such as starting a business, working for an established company, working in production agriculture, raising an animal, maintaining a garden and many other opportunities. The FFA provides members the opportunity for leadership experience, competitions, scholarships, jobs and personal growth. https://www.ffa.org/ffa-brand-center/downloadsDownload Official FFA assets

PALS Program Objectives
PALS is a mentoring program that matches high school agriculture students with elementary and middle school students. The program helps students to build trust in others and develop positive self-esteem, and engage in ag literacy activities.
Through the PALS program, high school, middle school and elementary students develop special, one-to-one relationships, while exploring their interests in plants, animals and the world around them. As a result, the younger students become more interested in engaged in school and develop stronger social skills.
Agriculture Education strives to provide a total, dynamic educational system that contributes to students’ personal, academic and career development. To help agriculture education in this overall mission the PALS program helps to:
- Expand agriculture programs and agricultural literacy
- Amplify the “whole person” concept of education, focusing on a student’s leadership, personal and interpersonal skills
- Provide leadership and cultivate strong partnerships in schools across all programs and subject areas.
- Improves interpersonal, human relations and leadership skills in elementary/middle school youth and local FFA members
- Develops the human resource potential of FFA members, elementary/middle school youth, teachers and administrators involved in the project
- Increases self-concept and self-esteem as a result of relationships between young adult role models and elementary/middle school youth
- Increases mentor understanding of the principles and fundamentals of the human development process
- Increases consideration of human development needs of youth and the community at large with increased interaction and relationships between teachers across grade levels and school sites
- Develops networks between people of all ages who have similar goals, objectives and skills in human development
- Recognizes and become knowledgeable of projects and resources of local, state and federal agencies and institutions involved in youth development
- Increases awareness of agriculture and environmental science in elementary/middle school youth and the community
