The Younger Child and 4-H: A National Survey. A 4-H Intern Report.
Fisher, Susanne G.
The national survey results present the perceptions of extension professionals viewing 4-H programs from a State level as they relate to the following survey goals: (1) to determine extent of current State 4-H programs, level of participation, methods or approaches being used, and plans for future programs for children under nine, (2) to collect and catalogue copies of current program resources used in programs for children below age nine, and (3) to develop recommendations for consideration in future program development and research with this age group. Major findings are reported concerning level of participation; defining "young member"; State policies regarding age and participation of children under nine; current 4-H programs and teaching materials for children under nine; and future program plans for younger children. It is generally concluded that a more substantial commitment to this age group is needed. Appended materials include the survey form, a list of 4-H publications related to younger children, and a list of States and individuals responding to the survey. (MW)
