Record Books

  • 4-H Record Books allow members to reflect on their yearly work.  They document their skill development and their learning experiences in a written report.  4-H members measure their achievements and growth in their total years in 4-H.707951601
  • 4-H Record Books encourage members to set goals, pursue strategies to meet those goals, and to shift gears in the face of challenges and obstacles.  Completion of the Personal Development Report awards 4-H members for participation in 4-H activities, which provides an incentive for participation, learning, and achievement.
  • Completing a 4-H Record Book is a process where 4-H members record project and club work.  Records management is a competency skill to identify, create, classify, archive, and preserve records.  The 4-H Record Book teaches 4-H members these skills through a standard format.
  • Record Books promote positive youth development.  Youth development is the process through which youth acquire the cognitive, social, and emotional skills and abilities  equired to navigate life.  This development occurs throughout a young person’s life.  Continued exposure to positive experiences, settings and people, as well as opportunities to gain and refine life skills, supports young people in the development of the 6 Cs: competence, confidence, character, caring, connection, and contribution.
