Each year, FFA members from all over the United States travel to Washington, D.C. to attend the Washington Leadership Conference (WLC).

During the five-day event, attendees learn how to become effective leaders by teaching them to know their purpose, value people, take action,  and serve others. The capstone event of the Washington Leadership Conference is a civic engagement activity, where participants apply the things they’ve learned at the conference to a real, hands-on service activity. 

 

The National FFA Organization partners work with several community service agencies in the D.C.-area to identify needs that WLC participants can help address. Through the years, WLC participants have contributed over 23,000 hours of service through these activities.

This is no ordinary leadership experience. You will spend a week putting these skills into practice as you make new friends from across the United States, tour our nation's capitol and visit with members of Congress. This action-packed week will help you gain self-confidence and leadership skills to take back to your FFA chapter and share with other members. Attendees leave WLC with the knowledge and the confidence to act in ways that help their schools, community, and their country.
