Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine if differences exist between 4-H members and non 4-H members in a south Louisiana parish on career decision making self-efficacy. This study may help youth recognize experiences that help them make career decisions. This was a cross-sectional study designed to describe 4-H and non-4-H members on career decision making self-efficacy. This study describes the information obtained from a one-time pencil/paper survey. All participants will remain anonymous. There was a statistically significant positive association between career decision making outcome expectancy/intentions and goals and years in 4-H as well as total club membership. As youths’ years in 4-H increased, so did their career decision making outcome expectancy/intentions and goals scores. Additionally, as youths’ total membership in clubs increased so did their career decision making outcome expectancy/intentions and goals scores.
