What is Often Missing in
Project Development?
• 4-H’er driven
• it’s what the 4-H’er likes to & wants to do
• Goal setting
• today, next week, next month
• Build on interests
• Pick a project not a presentation
• Quality, Quantity & Variety
• Set apart from everyone else
• Process vs Activity
• Not just stuff to do
• Portfolios are a reporting tool
• not the end result of the work
