Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1975 
78 p. 

State progress reports on the 4-H/Community Development program, a 1973 nationwide Federally sponsored program facilitating youth in community decision-making processes, indicate that the program appears to be evolving into a viable and integral part of the total 4-H program. Although the report describes unique program features of various States, statistical information is provided only on the 12 States which included their total number of youth participants in the State progress reports--Alabama, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Virginia, and West Virginia. The main approaches to launching programs were through regular 4-H programs and interorganizational involvement. They focus on specific problems or geographic areas. Ten suggested definitions of program areas include: leadership development; public affairs; taxation and local government; housing; manpower and career development; recreation and tourism; environment and ecology; business, industrial, and economic development; cooperatives and credit unions; and community facilities and institutions. About half of the report consists of various State program examples of: workshops, community planning, citizenship programs, a model city council, job and career programs, county clean-ups, Main Street beautifications, a blood donation campaign, hunter safety program, and a cultural heritage presentation.
