The Value of Teen Leadership

During the summer months of 2017, a team of Virginia 4-H extension agents and a 4-H extension specialist surveyed currently active teens and their parents/guardians to gather insight on how they became involved in 4-H, what keeps them engaged in the program, what they have learned as a result of their participation, how they are utilizing what they have learned, and their familiarity with the variety of opportunities available to teen 4-H members. As a result, 233 teens and 388 parents/guardians responded to the survey, representing all four districts and 71 of our 106 counties and cities in Virginia. The age range of teen respondents was 13-19 years old. This publication highlights the key findings from the study. 8.5 x 11, 8 pages, DS, BW pages 4 and 6, 24# single staple upper left
