Join 4-Hers across the nation as we celebrate National 4-H Week October 4-10! Every year, National 4-H Week sees millions of youth, parents, volunteers, and alumni come together to celebrate the many positive youth development opportunities offered by 4-H. The theme for this year’s National 4-H Week, Opportunity4All, is a campaign that was created by National 4-H Council to rally support for 4-H Youth Development and identify solutions to eliminate the opportunity gap that affects 55 million kids across America.
Scott County 4-H and its nearly 450 4-Hers and volunteers will observe National 4-H Week this year by highlighting all of the great opportunities 4-H offers. Visit Scott County 4-H on Facebook or 4-h.org to learn more about 4-H.
4-H is a youth development program of the University of Minnesota Extension and part of a national program sponsored by the USDA. Available for youth beginning in kindergarten, 4-Hers participate in hands-on learning experiences in STEM, leadership & civic engagement, animal science, creative arts, and much more. Through 4-H’s learn-by-doing process, youth obtain essential life skills such as problem solving, decision making, coping, and communicating that help them succeed in school, community, and career.
