Sustaining an organization demands two levels of active community support. At one level, people who are recognized as leaders in the community are needed to serve as visible champions for the organization. For A Coming of Age FFA this includes the board of directors, foster parents, school sites, public and other community partners, volunteers donors and local business leaders.
At another level, the organization needs the understanding and support of members of the public at large who are beneficiaries and users of the program and services offered by the organization. In this way, the organization can be assured of support and involvement leading to achievement of the organization’s long term results. We call these “partners” of our organization who support our mission and our organization “key champions.” These organizations are our advocates who are visible in the community and help us to accomplish the work that we do by providing support to our organization in multiple ways.
