The purpose of this study was to identify what leadership learning outcomes adults perceive to have gained from participation as youth in Georgia 4-H livestock projects. Participant reflections may serve to inform improvements to Georgia 4-H livestock projects. The leadership and life skills participants self-identified we analyzed through qualitative research methods. Nine domains emerged to illustrate the types of experiences that developed leadership and life skills for participants. These domains included communicating, helping others, managing, working, responsibility/commitment, connecting, passion, thinking, and achieving. Kolb’s Experiential Learning Theory and Katz’s Three-Skill Approach to Leadership provided a basis for interpreting the findings.
