Together We Make a Difference: Inclusive Service Learning as part of 4-H Youth Development Programs

Description

Instilled hope, a sense of purpose, self-confidence, and a positive vision of the future among at-risk, high school youth with and without disabilities through a year-long inclusive service learning experience delivered through 4-H programs. The project also aimed to help develop a long-term partnership between the Institute on Community Integration, University of Minnesota Extension, and youth development organizations working within the 4-H framework to enhance the opportunities of Minnesota youth with and without disabilities to become successful learners who positively engage with their communities and become future leaders.
