4-H Youth Programs - Enhancing the Quality of Life.
Pilat, Mary
Indiana 4-H Youth Programs are being used to enhance the quality of life for troubled adolescents in residential group homes and economically disadvantaged urban areas and to provide summer-school programs for children of migrant farm workers. Four basic types of program delivery modes exist in Indiana: clubs, junior leader program activities, educational trips and summer programs, and school enrichment educational units. All of these program modes work because they correspond to the developmental needs of the youth participants. However, this program has been perceived as strictly rural and related to agriculture. Even for troubled rural youth dealing with abuse, domestic violence, etc., 4-H offers a safety net for caring adults to interact with youth. (NB)
