How can exploring one’s identity and self-purpose help youth get more out of programs, such as 4-H? Dr. Tony Burrow, associate professor in the Department of Human Development at Cornell’s College of Human Ecology shares his research on the benefits of helping youth think about long-term personal goals and self-identifying “their why” prior to introducing programming in clubs like 4-H. Tony is co-director of the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research Program for Research on Youth Development and Engagement (PRYDE), and a recent recipient of Engaged Scholar Prize from Engaged Cornell.
