THE 4-H RECORD BOOK
4-H record books serve a variety of purposes in the 4-H Youth Development Program. While society has changed, so have the goals of 4-H members to reflect on their yearly work completed as well as maintain records of project and club work. 4-H members demonstrate growth and measure achievements across their years in 4-H.
In record-keeping, 4-H members develop the following life skills:
- Maintaining records of 4-H project, club work and school and community activities.
- Keeping personal and business records.
- Improving communication with other people.
- Learning time management and organizational skills.
- Learning responsibility and developing goal setting skills.
