Did you know there is science behind the magic of 4-H? Research in the fields of positive youth development and the science of learning and development (SoLD) provides the body of evidence that undergirds why what we do in 4-H positively impacts youth development. In this video Dr. Mary Arnold presents three definitions of positive youth development (PYD) and explains how PYD research is translated into practice. Also covered are the recent findings from research in the science of learning and development (SoLD) that has expanded our understanding of how youth grow and develop, and the implications of SoLD for ensuring equity and opportunity for all youth in 4-H.
