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.
