dc.description.abstractThis study aimed to address the oscillating enrollment numbers in secondary agricultural education programs in Georgia. The purpose of this study was to identify the effective strategies and activities utilized by Georgia agriculture teachers in recruiting students into secondary agricultural education programs. A census was conducted of Georgia agriculture teachers (N=280). Georgia agriculture teachers perceive the FFA to be the most helpful in regards to recruitment as well as the most beneficial to the students through participation. The most effective recruitment strategies as reported by Georgia agriculture teachers were FFA chapter events, the curriculum, Ag student - student contact, recruitment events, feeder school contact, publications, parents/teacher/support groups, and agriculture teacher - student contact. Activities specific to each strategy were ranked within each strategy. It is recommended that this information be used as a springboard to develop recruitment strategies and activities for the local program by current teachers and pre-service teachers in Georgia.
