Topics covered include agriculture and natural resources; lawn and gardens, environmental protection and resource conservation; family life; health and nutrition; housing and emergency preparedness; and youth development through 4-H programs.

Positive outcomes in youth, adults, and communities result from the presence of critical elements in a 4-H experience?!€ A group of evaluators reviewed the basic and applied research on characteristics of effective programs for youth development. From this process, eight essential elements were identified focusing on belonging, mastery, generosity and independence.
