Dane County Positive Youth Development

The Extension Institute of Positive Youth Development prepares today’s youth to become the effective, empathetic adults of tomorrow. Our research-based youth enrichment programs like teens in governance build youth and adult capacity and partnerships that help both sides grow. 4-H clubs, camps, and afterschool programs give young people the hands-on experiences they need to develop an understanding of themselves and the world.
