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 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.
