Abstract

The California 4-H Science Leadership Team conducted a statewide assessment to evaluate the needs of countybased 4-H programs related to the key areas of the 4-H Science Initiative: Program development and design, professional development, curricula, evaluation, partnerships, and fund development. The use of multiple qualitative data sources proved effective in identifying needs and gaps. Integrated findings provided evidence of institutionalization of 4-H Science; the assessment also revealed gaps that represent opportunities for future efforts and directions. Needs identified included intentional and systematic science programming, effective program models, professional development for staff, and consistency in messaging and branding.
