By setting goals at the beginning of the year or the project, youth will learn how to document skills gained and reflect on the experiences as a result of project work. 4-H Portfolios are designed to help Senior 4-H members prepare a comprehensive summary of their involvement in the 4-H Program and the impact it has made on their life. A portfolio is a collection of items and information that documents growth and achievement over a period of time.
