Abstract


This study examined the readiness of youth involved in the 4-H healthy lifestyles program to make career decisions, identified as career maturity. A random sample of youth involved in the 4-H healthy lifestyles program was used to participate in the research study, which entailed the completion of an online survey. The findings indicate that youth in the 4-H healthy lifestyles program have a high level of career maturity with some significant differences found based upon age; however, no significant differences were found based upon gender or years of involvement in the 4-H program.
