Analysis of 4-H Community Development Programs in the Cooperative Extension Service. Summary of Research Series.
Waddy, Paul H., Jr.; Cunningham, Clarence J.
A three-part questionnaire requiring the prioritization of 93 program items under 13 identified program areas was administered to 207 Extension agents in counties from 30 States where 4-H Community Development (CD) programs were conducted through organized groups. The study was designed to (1) describe and analyze the 4-H/CD programs conducted by Extension agents and leaders through organized 4-H/CD groups at the local or county level, (2) determine the priority of 4-H/CD programs as perceived by Extension agents responsible for 4-H/CD groups at the county level, (3) describe and analyze the most important activities conducted, and (4) specify limitations and conditions involved in conducting 4-H/CD programs as perceived by Extension agents at the county level. In this report, the high priority items selected by the respondents in each of the program areas are listed and other findings relating to the size of the county staff, past 4-H activities, degree of support for 4-H/CD programs, and problems are briefly discussed under separate headings. The major part of this report consists of 13 tables (one for each program area) showing the rankings of the 93 program items. (SH)
