The structured learning, encouragement and adult mentoring that young people receive through their participation in 4-H plays a vital role in helping them achieve future life successes. For nearly a decade, preeminent youth development scholar, Dr. Richard Lerner, and the team at the Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development at Tufts University have been working with faculty at land-grant universities to conduct The 4-H Study of Positive Youth Development.
年輕人藉由參與四健會而接受結構化的學習,成人的指導和鼓勵,這些事情在幫助他們實現未來成功的生活中扮演了重要的角色。近十年,傑出的青年學者─理查博士與其團隊在塔夫茨大學的青年發展應用研究所與其他授田大學進行四健會青年發展的研究。

The 4-H Study of Positive Youth Development is a longitudinal study that began in 2002, and continues today, surveying more than 6,400 adolescents from diverse backgrounds across 34 U.S. states. The study is made possible by the contributions of our nation’s land-grant universities and National 4-H Council.
This in-depth study has discovered that, when compared to other youth, young people involved in 4-H:
Have higher educational achievement and motivation for future education Are more civically active and make more civic contributions to their communities
有關青年正面發展與四健會的研究是一項長期的研究,始於 2002年,並一直延續至今。在美國34州調查超過6400多來自不同背景的青少年。這項研究得以實行乃歸功於我們國家、授田大學和美國四健委員會。這個深入的研究發現,相對於其他青年,有參與四健會的青少年有較高教育成就及未來繼續深造的動機,並且更積極的投入公民活動,並貢獻於他們所在的社區。

4-H Youth Make More Healthy Choices
According to Wave 6 of the study, 4-H’ers – regardless of their background, socio-economic status, race, and gender – thrive through the health/safety education and experiences they receive through 4-H  programming. In fact, young people in 4-H are: Less likely to have sexual intercourse by Grade 10, 56% more likely to spend more hours exercising or being physically active, Shown to have had significantly lower drug, alcohol and cigarette use than their peers.
四健青年做出更健康的選擇
依第六波的研究,四健會員們不論其背景,社會經濟地位,種族,性別 - 在四健會所上的健康/安全教育或課堂經驗中,他們受到四健會課程設計。其實,年輕人在四健會:不太可能在10年級前發生性行為,56%的人花費更多的時間在運動方面,比起同儕有吸毒、酗酒和抽煙者比例明顯較低。

4-H’ers Excel in School and the Sciences
The advantages of 4-H participation also include higher educational achievement and higher motivation for future education. Young people in 4-H:
• Report better grades, higher levels of academic competence, and an elevated level of engagement at school,
• Are nearly two times more likely to plan to go to college,
• Are more likely to pursue future courses or a career in science, engineering, or computer technology.
The study also finds that girls in 4-H are more than twice as likely to participate in science, engineering, or computer technology programs than their peers.

四健會會員在學校和科學知識上優越的表現
參與四健的優點還包括較高的教育成就及未來的教育動機。年輕人在四健會有:
•更好的成績,更高層次的學術水平,提升學校的參與程度,
•更有可能接近兩倍的人計劃去上大學,
•更有可能在未來的課程或職業生涯中選擇與科學、工程或計算機技術相關的。
該研究還發現,在四健會的女生比同儕,參與科學,工程或計算機技術方面人數超過兩倍。
