Project Description

4-H Record Books give members an opportunity to reflect on their yearly work. They document their skill development and their learning experiences in a written report. 4-H members measure their achievements and growth in their total years in 4-H.

4-H Record Books encourage members to set goals, pursue strategies to meet those goals, and to shift gears in the face of challenges and obstacles. Completion of the Personal Development Report awards 4-H members for participation in 4-H activities, which provides an incentive for participation, learning, and achievement.

Completing a 4-H Record Book is a process where 4-H members record project and club work. Records man-agement (RM) is a competency skill to identify, create, classify, archive, and preserve records. The 4-H Record Book teaches 4-H members these skills through a standard format.

The Online Record Book advances the traditional program with modern tools and formatting. The system is a simple structure for members to communicate with volunteers and other club members. This simplicity and ease is carried over into posting/updating events, meetings, and project activities. From these updates and postings a completed Record Book can be printed out at the end of the year. All relevant forms are designed into the system and are compatible with their paper counterparts.
