New York State 4-H is supporting the National 4-H Annual Index Study, an effort to learn more about how 4-H positive youth development is helping youth thrive. Participating in this study provides us with an opportunity to learn more about how we are working towards statewide Plan of Work goals and connect with national efforts as well.
The study invites youth ages 13-18 to share feedback about their 4-H experience through an online Qualtrics survey that takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. We will be sharing the survey link with all eligible youth in an invitation sent through 4-H Online. If you use another enrollment system, contact Alexa for the invitation message to share with youth and families in your county.
Our goal is to have 250 responses to the survey by May 31, 2023. If we are able to reach that goal, we will also be able to receive a NYS-specific report. If at least 5 youth from each Association complete the survey, we will reach that goal.
Please share this opportunity through your local newsletters and communication channels. Here is a downloadable graphic you could use on social media if you like. Are there youth who come to mind that you could contact directly to participate? Let's work together to amplify the voices of NYS 4-H youth and learn about their 4-H experiences.
