A Study of Urban 4-H Club Programs in Thirty Cities of the United States.
Brownell, Joseph C.
This report covers a six-month sabbatical travel study of urban 4-H programs in 30 United States cities. The purpose of the study was to search for 4-H programs and methods which were being used successfully with urban boys and which might be adapted for use in other urban situations. Interviews with professional 4-H personnel, aides, and leaders of other youth organizations were subjective in nature. Many instances were found where individual agents were making a strong effort to provide innovative programs, but most of them reflected local conditions so strongly that they could not be readily transposed to another situation. However, eight programs with wider possibilities were discovered. It was found that relatively little commitment has been made to urban 4-H programs by Cooperative Extension, and that a regularly funded program is necessary to gain the confidence of people and to attract leaders.
