This quantitative study sought to determine if the “teen-as teacher” educational
strategy promotes positive youth development in 4-H youth while assuming their role as a
teen teacher through the projects “Promotores de Salud” and “Ruta 4-H” in Puerto Rico.
The study aims to obtain the perception of positive youth development and training
received from the 4-H youth who participated as a teen teacher. A sample of 52 members
of 4-H senior category who were teen teachers during January to May 2019 through the
different regions of the Agricultural Extension Service in PR was used. The youth
completed a questionnaire from which it was found that 93% of the teen teachers "strongly
agree" or "agree" on their positive youth development and on the training received. The
4-H youth had an increase in positive development, in basic development of skills and
abilities, in expanding the teaching-learning process and in socialization.
