This webinar is a follow-up to earlier presentations by Dr. Mary Arnold on a new model for the 4-H program. The model, which proposes that 4-H programs impact youth by increasing youth thriving, was pilot tested in 2017. The results of the pilot test supported the proposed model and suggest important implications for 4-H programs. During this webinar, Dr. Arnold will present an overview of the model, the results of the pilot research, and updates on next steps for the model. An important aspect of this webinar will be the implications for 4-H programs seeking to increase thriving in youth.
Mary Arnold is an Extension Youth Development Specialist with the Oregon 4-H Program, and Professor in the School of Social and Behavioral Health Sciences, College of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University. Dr. Arnold’s work focuses on the translation of adolescent and positive youth development research theory into practice. Feel free to share with Military CYP staff.
