These stories or vinettes were from the heart, not by professional writers. An intentional effort was made to preserve the tone and integrity of each story with a minimum of editing. While you will not find a common voice throughout this book, you will find a common theme. That theme is the positive impact 4-H and 4-H people have had on the lives of millions of young people for more than 100 years. It is an amazing story.

Title:America's Youth in Crisis - Challenges and Options for Programs and Policies
Author(s):Richard M. Lerner
Date:1995
Pages: 147
Publisher:SAGE Publications
Description:Sponsored by the National 4-H Council. Our nation's youth are at risk for drug and alcohol abuse, unsafe sexual practices, teen poregnancy, academic underachievement, delinquency, and crime and violence. What can be done to prevent these problems from occurring? Outlining a vigorous "call to arms," this volume describes the steps needed to overcome these potential problems by enhancing academic researchers' responsiveness to the needs of the community and encouraging them to apply the results of research findings to community outreach. After reviewing the problems that beset today's youth, Lerner offers a model - developomental contextualism - that provides a theoretical framework for viewing child and adolescent developmelnt in relation to specific features of environmental "context," such as family, neighborhood, society, and culture. This model is used to describe the problems and the potentials that are associated with the bidirectional relationships between youth and their contexts. Lerner asserts that, by altering the context in which youth live, researchers can test the effectivelness of policies and/or programs in creating desired changes in children's and adolescents' behavior and development.

Title:Working With Rural Youth
Author(s):Edmund deS. Brunner
Date:1942
Pages: 117
Publisher:American Council on Education
Description:Prepared for the American Youth Commission. Dealing with the special problems of eleven million youth on the farms and in the villages of rural America, this book reports an experiment in social engineering. The American Youth Commission's Rural Project, of which this publications is a result, was not a research project in the usual sense of the word. Rather, it was set up to stimulate and develop activities for meeting the needs of rural youth through existing agencies in states, counties, and communities. By actual demonstration and proof the workers on these projects were able to build confidence in cooperative activity and to initiate programs that have lasting value. This book tells their story - an absorbing narrative of democracy in action. It deals with organizing community groups, working out cooperative relationships, setting up programs of action, carrying them out, meeting and overcoming obstacles and difficulties, and other practical activities. Although not a detailed account of techniques, the report makes a frank appraisal of those methods and procedures which were successful as well as those which were not so successful. One interesting project is selected for more detailed review. At the end of the book appears a careful summary of results, findings, and general principles. The relationship of rural youth to the war, civilian defense, and morale-building is an important aspect of the report, but there are even greater implications for lthe long-range, postwar readjustments that are inevitable.

Her great aunt Mary Gabrish-Offutt found it and kept it for many years, donating it to the Cleveland County 4-H Office. Annie's Aunt Edith Gabrish-McDowell is pictured with the 1941 Oklahoma delegation to Congress, wearing a black dress and necklace. The photo was taken at the Stevens Hotel Congress banquet. Annie explains that Aunt Edith was a Cleveland County 4-H member and later an extension agent in Murray County (Sulphur, Oklahoma). Annie is proud that her family's 4-H history goes back 75 years and that three generations have gone to National 4-H Congress - Great Aunt Edith, her mother Theresa Gabrish-Bragg and Annie's sister Julie Bragg. This presentation truly tells a photo story of a family 4-H history and restoration of an heirloom skillfully created by a 9-year-old.

Author(s):Mary Eva Duthie and Emma Dodson Nevin.

Pages: 24
Publisher:The Dramatic Publishing Company
Description:20 Minutes. 4 girls. A 4-H Club comedy. You wouldn't exactly get lost in Marge's and Jean's bedroom, but you certainly needed to pick your way around carefully. Shoes, schoolbooks, clothes were all scattered about in a mess. Their mother frowns on the idea they bring home from the 4-H Club on constructing a closet to care for their things."It's too much bother. You'll never be able to carry it through successfully," etc. In Mother's absence an opportunity arises to try out their plan. But what will Mother say when she returns? She says plenty at first, and the girls who have been so proud of their tidy room, are almost crushed. Then Mother repents and adds the finishing touch to their work in a charming ending. A fine play for 4-H Club girls or others, by two leaders in the Department of Rural Social Organization of Cornell University.

Description:3 plays and prologue can be used as one play or three separate one-act plays. Each part tells the story of a famous painting. "Girl at the Open Half Door" - artist Rembrandt, 2 males and 2 females. "Landscape" - artist Segonzac, 3 males and 1 female. "Tornado" - artist John Stewart Curry, 2 males and 2 females. Thes three short plays give us human interest stories about the artists and their paintings. Humor and pathos. Historically correct. Written especially for the use of 4-H Clubs and was performed at the annual banquet of the National 4-H Club Congress in 1935. Excellent material for art appreciation programs. It is hoped that rural youth will come to have a greater appreciation of the color and beauty found in nature all about them.

Description:For more than 100 years, the 4-H Youth Development movement has accumulated a wealth of practical experience related to working with youth in rural areas. Through opportunities provided by the United States Department of Agriculture, CSREES Rural Youth Development Grant Program, National 4-H Council collaborated with a nationwide network of Land-Grant College and University partners to lead the charge for positive youth development tailored to the unique needs of rural youth in communities of less than 10,000 people.

The foundation of 4-H lies in rural America so it is fitting that the emphasis of the Rural Youth Development grants has been to engage rural youth in strengthening and sustaining their communities. This report represents the best in creative programming, promising practices, lessons learned and success stories that portray the impact of this funding on the rural youth and communities for which it was designed.

Title:Obtaining Local Resources for County Extension Programs
Author(s):Claude F. Bennett and Joel R. Soobitsky
Date:1974
Pages: 74
Publisher:Extension Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture
Description:Cooperative Extension Agent throughout the United States are interested in strengthening and expanding existing local programs and in the creation of innovative efforts. A crucial limitation in the development of these programs is the availability of additional resources. Although public appropriations continue to be the major contributor to Extension efforts, an untapped reservoir of local private contributors appears to be the answer to the immediate need of additional resources for local county program efforts. These local resources are available in each county throughout these United States with many county agents presently expanding program efforts beyond belief due primarily to the securement of local private resources. These guidelines are being presented to county Extension agents as helpful hints in the process of obtaining local resources.
