Youth Action to Improve the Environment. A 4-H Community Development Project. 4-H Leaders' Guide.
Hamilton, Stephen F.
This guide is intended to assist adults working with youth in projects to improve the natural environment of their communities. Two types of environmental projects are described: (1) information projects and (2) work projects. Information projects involve youth in gathering information and then communicating it to the public and to community decision makers. Work projects are those in which young people do physical labor to improve the environment. Examples of youth-centered and adult-centered projects are given and considerations related to both are discussed. Finally, a short bibliography is presented. (Author/BB)
