and activities of in-school youth organizations in
agriculture using Ekiti and Ondo states as case study. The
study was a survey research. A total of 770 respondents,
purposively sampled from schools, Ministries of Education
and Agriculture were used as subject for this study. The
instrument used was 20 item questionnaire. Frequency
distribution, mean, standard deviation, ranking order,
t-test and ANOVA were used to analyze the data. The findings
from the study show that evaluation of the programmes and
activities of in school youth organizations in agriculture
is inevitable for the purpose of programme and
organization’s improvement and feedback. Based on the
finding’s of this study, it was recommended among others
that standard criteria should be set and reviewed regularly
