¿Qué es Juntos 4-H?

Juntos 4-H in Cook County

In 4‑H programs, kids and youth complete hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture, and civic engagement in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles.

The DNA experiment was fun and I learned something new. I would really like to do more experiments and activities from home.” Student Sebastian Pinto, Bremen High School.

The COVID-19 global pandemic has had a significant impact on all levels of education. Many of us have had to make tough decisions on the fly, canceling in-person programs, and most importantly helping our students and families transition to a virtual learning setting in a matter of days. Thus, face-to-face programming pivoted to an online paradigm shift.

Testimonials

"Juntos" has been very informative to us as a family, much more informative to our son. He already knows areas where must focus, what he has to practice, what is coming, and what he is going to have to do. Thank you for this program, it is incredibly good for us as parents who are involved."

- Villafuerte Family, Morton West High
