Colwich Clover 4-H
The goal of 4-H is TO MAKE THE BEST BETTER. With more than 6 million youth ages 7-19, 4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization, building revolutionary opportunities and implementing community-wide change at an early age.
A Tufts University report shows that 4-H youth excel beyond their peers. 4-H'ers are about four times more likely to make contributions to their communities (Grades 7-12); two times more likely to be civically active (Grades 8-12);two times more likely to make healthier choices (Grade 7); two times more likely to participate in Science, Engineering and Computer Technology programs during out-of-school time (Grades 10 – 12); and 4-H girls are two times more likely (Grade 10) and nearly three times more likely (Grade 12) to take part in science programs compared to girls in other out-of-school time activities.
The caring support of adult volunteers and mentors inspires young people in 4-H to work collaboratively, take the lead on their own projects and set and achieve goals with confidence. 4-H’ers chart their own course, explore important issues and define their place in the world. 4-H’ers stand up for themselves and their communities.
These pivotal experiences build a foundation of leadership and skills for success in their future careers. Learn more about 4-H programs at www.4-h.org or find out how you can get involved.
In Colwich, the Colwich Clovers 4-H Club is doing it's part to make the best better by hosting a homemade noodle soup supper in the winter, participating in the Heritage Festival and local and regional community service events, and improving the leadership and public speaking abilities of it's members. The club meets the 4th Wednesday of each month in the ICM West building. For more information, contact Theresa Seiler at 796-0606.
