4-H is delivered by Cooperative Extension—a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. Kids complete hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture and citizenship, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles. Kids experience 4-H in every county and parish in the country—through in-school and after-school programs, school and community clubs and 4-H camps.
Here in Monmouth County, the primary delivery method of 4-H is through 4-H Clubs. To find out which club is right for you, contact the Monmouth County Rutgers Cooperative Extension office at http://monmouth.njaes.rutgers.edu/4h/form-join.asp or call us at 732-431-7260 ext 7264.
