Texas FFA Foundation Intern Opportunity      

2023 Texas FFA Foundation Internship Program

The Texas FFA Foundation affords a unique internship opportunity for college students interested in serving prior to, and following the annual Texas FFA Convention.  The internship provides students the chance to work with a local Host Committee, Texas FFA sponsors, board of directors, and staff. 


This paid internship will focus on planning and development activities associated with the annual convention. Duties may include but are not limited to: working in the office of the host committee chairperson, coordinating supply needs i.e., contest judges, meals, activities, and hospitality associated with the convention and convention VIPs and guests.  There may also be opportunities for special projects if interested.

Students interested in agricultural science education, communications, marketing, promotions, and other relevant majors are encouraged to apply. The student will be asked to work on-site or in a hybrid (virtual and onsite) work environment.  The intern must be self-motivated and driven to accomplish tasks assigned.  The intern must be punctual and demonstrate strong communication and organizational skills.  Attention to detail is a must.  The internship will require flexibility, personal initiative, customer service skills, and professionalism.

The Texas FFA Foundation internship program is a two-year commitment that has proven to be a successful model.  Interns will serve as a “junior” intern in their first year and then as “senior” intern – leading the program – in their second year.

While not a prerequisite, students who have served as a State FFA Officer or Foundation Ambassador should note that experience when making application as it relates to the duties of this internship.
