Youth Development: Older Youth (Ages 15 to 19)

This document discusses the physical, cognitive (thinking), social and emotional development of teens aged 15 to 19. Adolescence has been described by some as a time of “storm and stress” and a time where one moment the teen acts as an adult and the next as a child. Teens can be challenging, changing, wonderfully creative and stimulating individuals at this time of their development. It is also a time when a teen’s interest in club or group activities may change. The information in this document can be useful for adult 4-H volunteers and staff who work with 4-H’ers in this age group. (It may also be useful for teens themselves!)
