    Description:

    University of Missouri (MU) Extension’s 4-H youth development programs help children and teens become competent, caring, contributing and capable through a series of progressive, sustained experiences with caring adults, primarily during non-school hours. In the past, many programs for young people were based on deficit-models, focusing primarily on problem behaviors. Youth development programs address the broader developmental needs of young people, emphasizing assets rather than deficits. These developmental needs include cognitive, social-emotional and physical growth—head, heart, hands and health.



     Of importance is for youth development programs to be ecological in their approach. Positive youth development involves the individual, family, community and society. Because Missouri 4-H youth development is part of the University of Missouri and Lincoln University, programs are solidly grounded in research about positive youth development and based on high-priority citizen needs and concerns. With extensive input from citizens, analysis of trends, and discussions by MU Extension faculty and staff, programs are focused on selected high-priority content-areas.



     Regardless of content area, high quality, MU Extension 4-H youth development programs achieve positive, long-term results or outcomes for young people. The timeless 4-H pledge (adopted in 1927) speaks to these outcomes as well.

    Description:

    The University of Missouri Extension’s Master Gardener program is an opportunity for people of all ages to receive in-depth horticulture training and then apply what they have learned to improve lives in their communities and educate others about gardening. Training includes 30 hours of instruction by horticulture instructors as well as many guides and handouts:
    Topics include plant growth and development, soils and fertility, vegetable gardening, home fruit production, insect and disease control, annual and perennial flowers, basic landscaping concepts, and lawncare and weeds.
    After completing Master Gardener training, Master Gardeners volunteer 30 hours to educate others on gardening topics and research–based horticulture information. Volunteer activities may include work in clinics in the community, helping local residents diagnose plant and insect problems write articles for newsletters and newspapers, exhibits at home and garden shows and fairs, organize community gardening projects, develop youth gardening programs, teach gardening classes, conduct home horticulture research, and assist in senior gardening programs
