Positive Youth Development Point of Departure

On August 3rd and 4th, the University of Georgia, Fort Valley State University, and NIFA hosted a Call to Conversation regarding Positive Youth Development (PYD) that was framed by a “Point of Departure” document. The main point taken up at the Georgia meeting was: 4-H reaches roughly 1 in 12 youth in the United States. While other PYD organizations serve some other children, there are still approximately 14 million youth who are under-served or unserved for PYD programming. How do we build on historical successes as we look to scale up to meet the demands of the future while ensuring both equity and a high rate of return, i.e., impact?
