Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of the 4-H advisory process as perceived by 4-H professionals in Louisiana and primary stakeholder groups in the LSU 4-H program. Data were obtained by 104 4-H youth development professionals and 142 parish 4-H advisory committee members. Descriptive data were obtained. Findings indicated that both groups perceived that the parish advisory process was effective. Advisory committee members had a higher level of agreement on the effectiveness of the process than the professionals on all measured scales. Based on results, it was concluded that the main focus of some parish advisory committees was the planning and evaluation of 4-H events and activities. Additionally, it was concluded that the membership on these committees needs to be more diverse.
