Experiential Learning Model

For over 100 years, multiple learning theories have offered growing support for the experiential learning model which serves as one of the frameworks for 4-H programs and curriculum. The experiential learning model allows youth to participate in engaging, stimulating activities that have a real-world basis. The experiential activities help the learners to connect what they are learning to prior knowledge and apply it to new situations or problems. Just as importantly, engaging in shared learning experiences creates social and cultural bonds that influence identity, relationships, goals, and success.
