SUMMARY: Youth Development

There’s no typical or “right” way to raise a child, but families of all types can have simlar challenges. Today’s hectic lifestyles can tax parents’ abilities. And outside the home, youths may face inadequate education, bullying, insecurity and negativity. Land-grant universities’ Extension 4-H youth development programs provide young people with positive role models and opportunities to prepare for success.
