Youth development rooted in social science

Across our curricula and programs, the national 4-H essential elements below are embedded into the learning experience to promote positive youth development:

  • Mastery: Youth need to feel and believe they are capable and they must experience success at solving problems and meeting challenges.
  • Generosity: Youth need to feel their lives have meaning and purpose.
  • Belonging: Youth need to know they are cared about by others and feel a sense of connection to others.
  • Independence: Youth need to know that they are able to influence people and events through decision-making and action.
