4-H YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

.....

The UF/IFAS Extension 4-H Youth Development Program uses a learn-by-doing approach to help youth gain the knowledge and skills they need to be responsible, productive citizens.  This mission is accomplished by creating safe and inclusive learning environments, involving caring adults, and utilizing the expertise and resources of the University of Florida and the nationwide land grant university system.

Research shows that Positive Youth Development occurs from an intentional process that promotes positive outcomes for young people by providing opportunities, choices, relationships and support.
