Youth Aspirations: A 4-H guidebook

youth aspirations guidebook cover

Imagining and navigating futures in higher education

A 4-H guidebook to prepare youth to thrive in education

This guidebook takes a new approach. Rather than focusing on grades, test scores or financing, the activities and program suggestions here help young people envision having higher education in their future and help them begin to take steps toward aspiration achievement that include relying on supports, navigating barriers, and reimagining what is possible for them.

At its core, this guidebook is about fostering the belief among young people that higher education is for them (i.e. they belong) and it is within their reach.
