Youth Boards

Similar to Program Area Committees, Youth Boards advise county Extension agents working with the 4-H and youth development program.  These youth and adult members, through the formation of a youth-adult partnership, help Extension educators identify needs and issues facing youth.  From the identified needs, Youth Board members then assist county Extension agents with the planning, implementation, evaluation and interpretation of educational programs for youth.

The following resources are available to assist county Extension agents when working with Youth Boards.
