4-H Youth Development

Youth Development PFT

The Youth Development Program Focus Team (hereafter YD PFT) is made up of KSRE staff who work with the Kansas 4-H Youth Development Program.  This page is designed to be a quick resource/reference for staff who are looking for the latest YD PFT action plan and related evaluation instruments to use with a 4-H audience.  The action plans are numbered with the action plans attached as a Word document, so they can easily be copied.

The instruments for an older and younger youth audiences follow each action plan.  The instruments are provided to you in Word, so that you can quickly tailor them for your Extension unit's 4-H audience.  You may add questions, but please do not delete questions.  These evaluation instruments have been entered into the PEARS system verbatim, so that data entry will match up with each specific evaluation instrument(s).

The communication instruments that have been used by counties since 2011 are also included for your use with the instructions provided for both short term and medium term outcomes.  These instruments measure the life skill of communication and are appropriate for use at county 4-H events like 4-H Day, Regional 4-H Days or other 4-H events deemed appropriate by KSRE staff.
