4-H Healthy Living Measures

Measuring the Prevention of Alcohol, Tobacco, & Other Drug Use (ATOD) and Social Emotional Health & Well Being (SEHWB)

The National 4-H Healthy Living Mission Mandate Task Force (2007-2009) compiled the following evaluation resources in order for 4-H to deliver high-quality healthy living opportunities. Indicators were developed by the Healthy Living Taskforce for ATOD and SEHWB.

Extensive research was conducted via literature searches, Internet search engines, websites, and referrals from experts in the field, to find potential measures for each of these constructs.  Measures were reviewed and scored by professionals in the field in order to determine the appropriateness for assessing these construct areas.
