Educational programs are provided to all residents without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, sex, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientations, marital or family status.
4‑H Youth Development Program
Our 4‑H Youth Development program uses a learn-by-doing approach to enable youth to develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to become competent, caring and contributing citizens of the world. This mission is accomplished by using the knowledge and resources of the Land-Grant University System, along with the involvement of caring adults.
