AN EVALUATION OF 4-H ADULT LEADERS AND THEIR TRAINING IN SEVEN CENTRAL INDIANA COUNTIES.
MILLER, STANDFORD KEITH
A STUDY WAS MADE OF THE CAPABILITIES AND EXPERIENCE OF 4-H CLUB LEADERS AND OF THEIR TRAINING. TWO MAILED QUESTIONNAIRES OBTAINED DATA FROM 78 LEADERS IN SEVEN INDIANA COUNTIES. COUNTY EXTENSION AGENTS RATED THE LEADERS AS TO EXPERIENCE AND CAPABILITY. ALTHOUGH THE MORE CAPABLE 4-H LEADERS FELT THEY WERE MORE ADEQUATELY TRAINED THAN THE LESS CAPABLE, NONE OF THE 78 FELT THEY HAD RECEIVED A HIGH DEGREE OF TRAINING. LESS CAPABLE LEADERS VALUED THEIR TRAINING TO A HIGHER DEGREE AND RECEIVED A HIGHER PERCENTAGE OF TRAINING BY ATTENDING COUNTY DISTRICT TRAINING MEETINGS, WHILE MORE CAPABLE LEADERS RECEIVED MORE TRAINING THROUGH PERSONAL CONTACT WITH THE COUNTY EXTENSION AGENT. MOST TRAINING REQUESTS WERE FOR "HOW TO KEEP TEENAGERS IN 4-H," AND "PROJECT INFORMATION AND REQUIREMENTS." THE MORE EXPERIENCED LEADERS HAD HAD GREATER TRAINING IN UNDERSTANDING THE NEEDS OF BOYS AND GIRLS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT 4-H CLUB LEADERS ARE NOT ADEQUATELY TRAINED, DO NOT HIGHLY VALUE THEIR TRAINING - ESPECIALLY PLANNED SESSIONS, AND TRAINING REQUESTS VARY ACCORDING TO EXPERIENCE AND CAPABILITY. THIS MASTERS THESIS IS AVAILABLE FROM INDIANA UNIVERSITY, BLOOMINGTON. (APPENDIXES INCLUDE THE QUESTIONNAIRE USED, RATING SCALE, AND SURVEY FORM) (PT)
