Positive youth development is at the heart of the work we do in 4-H. As the youth program of Cornell Cooperative Extension, our connection to Cornell University and the national land-grant institution system distinguishes 4-H as a leader in youth development programming. Our extension educators and volunteers have access to a rich library of research-based curriculum, projects and activities from Cornell University and the national extension system. Below we have provided a list of links to some of our Extension resources. In addition we’ve provided a link to websites, briefs and reports that are useful for learning about trends in the field of youth development.
