Eval18 4-H Youth Retention Study 

11-28-2018 13:14

Out of school time programs, like 4-H, have been shown to have a positive impact on youth, but behavior change in extension programs is most likely to occur if offered with more frequency and duration over time. In-depth information is needed for a program to address the factors that are most important for keeping youth engaged in a program. The research study focuses on first-year experiences in 4-H in California, Idaho, Montana, New Jersey, and Wyoming from the perspective of youths and adults (parents or guardians). Participants were asked why they enrolled themselves (or their child) in 4-H, their overall experience, what they liked best, and what they would change. Though results showed there was an overall positive experience, participants provided rich data on improvements that could be made in the local programs.
