Youth have a variety of extracurricular activities to choose from. For 4-H to continue to remain an attractive and relevant youth development experience, we need to be cognizant of how youth perceive 4-H. Results from over 1,400 youth in northwest Ohio reveal that those youth affiliated with 4-H perceive it more favorably than non-members. Also, as youth age, there tends to be a reduction in overall favorable rating or 4-H. It is important for 4-H to consider youth perceptions in program planning and adapting to the needs of new audiences and older youth.
