4-H Experiential Spectrum

4-H Youth Development Spectrum

4-H Experiential Learning programs fall about in the middle of the spectrum of the adventure-based experiential education field. Our programs focus on education and life skills development and are designed to be more than just entertainment or recreation. By sequencing activities and defining collaborative environments, participants learn new concepts and develop or enhance personal and interpersonal skills and behaviors through meaningful experiences.
