Youth development is defined as the on-going process in which all young people are engaged to build competencies necessary for successful adolescent and adult life. It is a way to think about youth that focuses on their capacities, strengths, and developmental needs and not on their weaknesses and problems. All young people have basic needs that are critical to survival and healthy development. At the same time, to succeed as adults, all youth must acquire positive attitudes and appropriate behaviors and skills.
UW – Extension 4-H Youth Development integrates research, education, and community-based partnerships, enabling youth to learn and practice skills to be productive citizens. UWEX staff design educational, leadership and citizenship experiences for youth. These programs are delivered through adult volunteers and by collaborating with other local organizations.
4-H is a wonderful opportunity for youth and adults to work together. Volunteers are essential partners in creating a positive environment by providing positive ways for youth to meet their basic needs and develop life skills. To that end, UWEX staff work with adult leaders to develop and strengthen their skills in working with youth, planning and organizing, group leadership, decision making, project support, communication skills, conflict management and life skills development.
