As a participant at Michigan State University Extension’s 4-H Capitol Experience Program, you learned about a current policy issue and about how policy decisions are made. You had an opportunity to examine a selected issue from a variety of viewpoints. You talked with people who influence policies, including lobbyists, state agencies personnel, representatives of local organizations, legislative aides and legislators.
The post-conference resources listed below are available in Adobe PDF format and may be photocopied for distribution. For example, you could use them with 4-H leadership groups or other 4-H meetings, as you work on an issue in your local community, with a church or civic group or as part of a classroom project.
