Few things are more important to long-term health and happiness than how one views himself or herself.  Body image is an important part of self-image.  

Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts:  mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity.  This project fosters mastery by completing a wardrobe inventory, learning which colors and styles enhance one's own body type, how media shape perceptions and learning to spend clothing dollars wisely; belonging by learning from mentors and being part of a group with similar interests, independence by taking responsibility for one's appearance; and generosity by getting involved in clothing drives and other helping efforts.  Contact your county extension office for more information.
