Oklahoma Youth Legislative Experience
The Oklahoma Youth Legislative Experience will provide 4-H and FFA members an opportunity to learn about the state legislative process. During the two-day conference, selected delegates will have the opportunity to research and write a proposal for a change to Oklahoma law. Delegates will debate selected proposals similar to the Oklahoma lawmakers. Delegates will also have the opportunity to interact with current and former state elected officials who were 4-H and FFA members. We would like to extend our thanks to Oklahoma Farm Bureau for sponsoring this conference and to the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy for providing program support.

Service Learning in Community-Based Organizations is a guide developed by the Search Institute and Learn and Serve Clearinghouse. Service-Learning intentionally integrates and emphasizes both service and learning. Youth engaged in service-learning not only provide direct service to the community, but also learn and grow in their knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Whether new to service-learning or have been doing it for years, this guide gives you and your organization the tips, tools, and techniques you need to start making a positive difference in many people’s lives by providing high-quality opportunities for youth to serve and learn.
Service Learning Action Plan (SLAP) guide will assist the club/committee, youth and adults in developing life skills in planning and conducting leadership and citizenship project.
