Engaging Teens & Older Youth

Research has clearly shown that quality youth programs, those proven most effective and rated highly by young people themselves, are masterful at engaging youth at the highest level in planning, making choices, and reflecting on their learning. Attention to making youth programs fun, interesting, welcoming and encouraging to young people in our 4-H Youth Development programs is important but not enough. This session, co-developed and delivered by youth, will provide insight, tools and resources volunteers can use to more effectively engage and meet the needs of teen members, a common challenge in youth programs.
