Addison Bomberger was in Washington, D.C., this summer to participate in the FFA Washington Leadership Conference.
This summer, members from around the country converged in Washington, D.C., to evaluate their personal skills and interests, develop leadership talent, and create service plans that will make a difference in their communities.
Addison Bomberger, president of the Goldendale FFA Chapter was among those students who traveled to D.C. this summer. She attended the conference Washington Leadership Conference the week of July 19-24. Addison spent the week under the guidance of professionals, counselors, and FFA staff. In workshops, seminars, and small groups, she focused on identifying and developing her personal strengths and goals while undergoing comprehensive leadership training that will help her guide her local FFA chapter as well as her District IV FFA.
The capstone of the event was a civic engagement activity where participants applied what they learned to a hands-on activity of preparing over 70,000 meal packages. “We were all invested in this project being successful given the information we learned about food insecurity in our nation. We felt a sense of wanting to be a part of the solution,” shared Addison.
As part of the program, Addison also analyzed the needs of her communities and developed a high-impact community service initiative and plan to implement her project with the help of Goldendale FFA chapter. Students in recent years have promoted agricultural literacy; brought attention to abuse; collected and distributed shoes to individuals in Haiti; created a hunger awareness plan; and more.
“I definitely saw how this experience helped me develop as a leader and advocate. It allowed me to develop myself as well as plan for my impact on my home FFA chapter and community,” Addison stated.
Additionally, Addison experienced the history of our nation’s capital and toured landmarks, including the National Mall, Arlington National Cemetery, Smithsonian Museums, U.S. Holcaust Museum, and the U.S. Capitol, among others.
The National FFA Organization is a school-based national youth leadership development organization of more than 735,000 student members as part of 8,817 local FFA chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
