All youth have the ability to lead, and 4-H makes sure it happens. In fact, 4-H youth are three times more likely to contribute to their communities. That's because 4-H is designed to bring out a young person's unique ability to lead and succeed. And, 4-H alumni continue to contribute long after graduating from 4-H.
(July 2013) Associate Dean & State 4-H Director Dorothy McCargo Freeman and Assistant Dean Jennifer Skuza testified in U.S. Congress recently about the significant educational impact of 4-H and other after-school programs. Their testimony will inform Congress as it considers the Afterschool for America’s Children Act S 326, which may result in funding changes in 2014 for non-profit organizations that provide after-school programming.
