About Mary Arnold

I am a professor in the School of Social and Behavioral Health Sciences in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences, and a youth development specialist working with the 4-H Youth Development Program at Oregon State University. Recently, I have been working on the development and testing of a model for 4-H youth development called the 4-H Thriving Model. This blog is dedicated to building a space where youth development educators can share how they are putting the model into practice in their work with youth.
