Assess how your club is currently performing:

It's important for 4-H advisors to occasionally assess and evaluate how well their club is doing in terms of offering positive youth development programming for the youth that it is serving. Use this assessment tool to identify areas that need improvement in your 4-H club. Any area that is marked as "sometimes" or "hardly ever" is an opportunity to improve! Be honest with yourself. This assessment is an opportunity to grow and set your club up for success.
