Since October is National 4-H month, it is prime time to talk about 4-H clubs and how they can provide strong support for military connected youth in our communities.
Supported by Cooperative Extension professionals, 4-H clubs provide educational experiences to military youth ages 5 to 18 using research based curricula and hands-on activities.
4-H clubs are established on almost every Army, Navy, and Air Force installation worldwide. Military youth living off installation as well as youth of National Guard and Reserve families can find a 4-H club in their community. More than 45,616 Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard, and Reserves youth have participated in 4-H military clubs on and off installations.
