4-H Program

Standards & Expectations Support Plan

The 4-H Program Standards & Expectations were released in October 2013. The purpose of that document was to clarify standards for effective county-based 4-H Youth Development programming. This Implementation Support Plan is designed to communicate to all 4-H faculty and volunteers the efforts designed to support county programs implement the Standards & Expectations.

This document is organized by the five major categories of expectations of all county 4-H programs. For each category a set of action items and deliverables are identified. A timeline has been set for each item. This is the date by which the action item/deliverable will be completed. Further, a “Lead” has been assigned to each item. This person(s) is responsible to provide leadership for the completion of the assigned action item/deliverable. In almost all instances, a team of individuals will work together on the item.
