Youth Voice: Developing Future Leaders Academic Article uri icon


  • The purpose of this study was to examine youths perceptions regarding their involvement on youth advisory boards in Cooperative Extension. A stratified, random sample of counties with active youth advisory boards was selected to ensure representation from all Extension districts in the state. A copy of the Involvement and Interaction Rating Scale was mailed to all participants. The findings indicate that Youth feel good about their level of participation on their youth advisory board and that adult members of the board allow them to have an active voice in the activities of the board.
