Community: Clubs and Organizations
spacer Delta Junctions clubs and organizations

 

Delta Junction is home to numerous clubs and civic organizations.

FFA Chapter

The Delta chapter of the Future Farmers of America was established in 1976 with 12 students. It has grown to about 40 members who are involved in many activities, including the Building Our American Communities program.

Individual members have personal projects, such as dairy production, beekeeping, gardening and raising livestock. These projects are financed by the student or sponsor and teach business skills and responsibility in addition to the practical aspects.

The FAA has a strong alumni association, also organized in 1976. This group has been helpful in providing financial, political and moral support for the chapter. The FAA motto is “Learning to do, Doing to learn, Earning to live, Living to serve”.
