4-H Youth Development: The Past, the Present, and the Future
Borden, Lynne M.; Perkins, Daniel F.; Hawkey, Kyle
Journal of Extension, v52 n4 Article 4COM1 Aug 2014
The 4-H Program within Cooperative Extension is more than 100 years old. As we celebrate 100 years of Cooperative Extension, the foundation built by the 4-H Program serves as grounds to meet the needs of today's youth. The diversity of the youth who participate continues to grow, families continue to become less traditional, potential volunteers' time continues to shrink, and the growing number of digital devices steal time. These changes demand 4-H adapt and innovate to remain relevant. This commentary examines the role that 4-H Youth Development will play in the next 100 years to face these challenges.
