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. Members spent the 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 helped members 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.
Members also had opportunity to sight see in the D.C. area with a night tour including the mall area with Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam memorial wall, WW II monument, Jefferson Memorial, Martin Luther King Memorial, Iwo Jima. Other activities included Library on Congress, Smithsonian Museums, Arlington Cemetery including Changing of the Guard Ceremony, Holocaust Museum, Capitol tour and Senate visit with Senator John Hoeven.
