IFAS Extension Goal 3, Logic Model and Communications Plan Organizational Strategies and Learning Environments to Support Youth Situation Statement Florida 4-H annually educates over 240,000 youth enrolled in programs in all 67 Florida counties, reaching youth 5 to 18 years of age. Programs include clubs, day camps, overnight camping programs, school enrichment, and after-school programs. The goal of organizational strategies and learning environments is to support youth programs through developing a structure that effectively manages staff and volunteers. Rationale In order to insure that youth are: (1) physically and emotionally safe; (2) developing and maintaining positive relationships; (3) developing a sense of belonging, in an inclusive environment; (4) developing personal competencies for self-reliance, independence, and autonomy; (5) growing and contributing as active citizens through service and leadership; and (6) developing marketable, productive skills and competencies for work and family life, organizational strategies must be developed. Strategies are the game plan management that an organization is using to conduct its operations to achieve its objectives (Thompson and Strickland, 2003). In an increasingly complex and competitive market for resources, it is important that youth programs be organized for efficient and effective delivery of the overall program. This includes managing financial and human resources, utilizing appropriate educational materials, creating opportunities for youth experiences, and communicating effectively with youth. Additionally, effective and efficient programs leverage resources and expertise with other youth organizations to maximize outcomes and community impacts. Impacts Youth are physically and emotionally safe. Youth develop and maintain positive relationships. Youth develop a sense of belonging, in an inclusive environment.
