4-H Afterschool

What do you get when you combine 4-H programming with area school programs?

4-H afterschool programs foster a unique combination of fun and learning that help youth develop lifelong skills, such as leadership, critical thinking, and teamwork. The programs address a growing need for quality afterschool programming in the U.S., where as many as 15 million children come home to empty houses afterschool. Research shows that high-risk youth can greatly benefit from 4-H programming.

To combat this, 4-H Afterschool Programs, provided by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oneida County, offer a wealth of research-based, ready-to-use, "learning by doing" curricula on a wide variety of topics. These programs include academic support, hands-on STEM activities, Agriculture in the Classroom lessons, SNAP Ed. programming, and much more!
