OALE MISSION STATEMENT

The Oklahoma Agricultural Leadership Encounter is a program designed to expand the knowledge of the Agricultural Industry in Oklahoma for today’s young adults.  Expansion and extension of the educational component of the Oklahoma Junior Livestock Program through production agriculture, is a major goal of the Oklahoma Youth Expo board of directors and staff.  It is only through a stronger concentration on education that future leaders are developed.

The Oklahoma Agricultural Leadership Encounter will assist class members in increasing and utilizing their knowledge base and skills to explore opportunities for the Industry of Agriculture that will benefit not only our local communities but our state and nation as well.  Through various opportunities, class members will visit a variety of agriculturally based companies and organizations across the state.  Students will be introduced and exposed to the legislative process and how it affects the agricultural industry.  Lastly, students will have the opportunity to join the Oklahoma Youth Expo, “The World’s Largest Junior Livestock Show,” as a valuable staff member.

Oklahoma State University is a natural fit for the Oklahoma Agricultural Leadership Encounter.  Oklahoma State University implements and exudes the highest standards possible in terms of education, research, faculty and students.  The Oklahoma Youth Expo is proud of its relationship with the oldest land grant university in Oklahoma; Oklahoma State University.  Through this partnership, the classroom will be extended in a “hands on manner.”  Members of Class XIII of the Oklahoma Agricultural Leadership Encounter will have the opportunity to gain two credit hours towards an undergraduate degree at Oklahoma State University.
