Dear Reader,

There tends to be a focus on youth in this issue of your Journal of Extension. You will find articles about youth as volunteers, what people think of a 4-H program for youth younger than 8, financial education of young people, and two articles regarding children of migrant farm workers.

Other topics reflect some long-time Extension concerns, such as dealing with nonpoint pollution problems, health and safety, farmers' markets and what they can mean to producers, consumers, and communities, and demographics of one state's Master Gardeners.

You'll also find a couple if ideas that you might use in your evaluation activities. One idea comes from Oregon, while the other is from Texas.

It is our hope that your Journal continues to bring you ideas and information that you can use in your Extension programs.

Len Calvert, editor
