4-H program developers, county 4-H educators, and local club leaders strive to develop and deliver educational programs to positively impact youths’ cognitive, social, physical, and emotional development. Beyond this, youth must also be motivated to sustain participation in these programs to continue to experience the developmental outcomes. However, motivating youth can seem like a moving target as motivators vary within each individual. When engaging and motivating youth within 4-H Youth Development programming, one must consider the youth’ ages, interests, confidence, and experiences. Join this webinar to explore effective youth motivational strategies which can help to create educational and motivational programming.
