Responsibility / Accountability
Responsibility/accountability among high-functioning people is turned both inward and outward. When turned inward it’s called personal responsibility and encompasses many of the daily living/self-care skills described above. When turned outward it becomes social responsibility – caring for the greater whole.
Key research findings:
- Participation in life skills programs and other youth development organizations can significantly improve both social and personal responsibility among youth.
- 4-H is a positive youth development organization that provides hands-on learning opportunities for youth in three areas (science, citizenship, and healthy living) that serve to promote the development of life skills.
