Youth will learn about all

kinds of animals on

Oglesby Acres.

The video shows the Guinea babies, which are called keets, when they

were only 6 days old.  The photo on the far right reveals 

the Guinea as adults,

showing a vast difference.

Connecting young people to nature, animals and the environment, the Oglesby Acres (OA) Youth Development Program is located on approximately 30 acres in the beautiful Natural State of Arkansas.  As a Philanthropy Alliance Foundation program, OA is focused on educating, enlightening and empowering youth through a plethora of programs.

Starting with our national

collaboration with our sister

city organization,

Wild Farmers, in Northern

California, we're excited

to expose youth to new

opportunities and adventures.

​From Arkansas to Argentina,

Paris to Pennsylvania and

Cambodia to California, OA's forthcoming youth development projects will be offering virtual learning experiences, hands-on workshops and international alliances through some of the following activities: 

  • The Arts (Visual, Dance and Music)
  • Camping and Camp Fires
  • ​Educational Hikes
  • Animal Husbandry
  • Fitness
  • ​Photography
  • Youth Veterinarian Program
  • Woodworking
  • Forestry, Horticulture and Gardening
  • Environmental Awareness
  • STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Math) and more

In addition, our youth empowerment program will build confidence, self-esteem, and leadership skills, while combatting bullying.

In the video, the baby chicks and ducklings

are 5 days old.
