    Leadership Program-Greenville High School (Session 3 of 4)

    When:  Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2019, 11 a.m. to noon

    Description:

    University of Missouri (MU) Extension’s 4-H youth development programs help children and teens become competent, caring, contributing and capable through a series of progressive, sustained experiences with caring adults, primarily during non-school hours. In the past, many programs for young people were based on deficit-models, focusing primarily on problem behaviors. Youth development programs address the broader developmental needs of young people, emphasizing assets rather than deficits. These developmental needs include cognitive, social-emotional and physical growth—head, heart, hands and health.



     Of importance is for youth development programs to be ecological in their approach. Positive youth development involves the individual, family, community and society. Because Missouri 4-H youth development is part of the University of Missouri and Lincoln University, programs are solidly grounded in research about positive youth development and based on high-priority citizen needs and concerns. With extensive input from citizens, analysis of trends, and discussions by MU Extension faculty and staff, programs are focused on selected high-priority content-areas.



     Regardless of content area, high quality, MU Extension 4-H youth development programs achieve positive, long-term results or outcomes for young people. The timeless 4-H pledge (adopted in 1927) speaks to these outcomes as well.
