Rural Youth Development

Youth Leading Community Change

Find tools and resources for youth and adults as they work together to build community assets. The site includes tools, curricula, and resources for planning, implementing, and evaluating community projects with young people ages thirteen to twenty-one.

All of the resources were developed by the Rural Youth Development program in collaboration with 4-H, FFA, and Girl Scouts. However, they can be applied to any community project or service learning effort.
