Positive Youth Development

What UW- Madison Extension Positive Youth Development Does

The Positive Youth Development programs prepare the youth of today to become the effective, empathetic adults of tomorrow. Our research-based youth enrichment programs build youth and adult capacity and partnerships that help both sides grow. 4-H clubs, camps, and afterschool programs give young people the hands-on experiences they need to develop an understanding of themselves and the world.

4-H Youth Development prepares youth for successful futures by engaging in fun, hands-on 4-H activities. Learn more on our 4-H Youth Development webpage.
Community Youth Development builds community environments where Wisconsin youth grow into the effective, empathetic adults of tomorrow. Learn more at our Community Youth Development webpage.
