Extension Agent, 4-H Youth Development
Have you ever wondered what 4-H is? How you, as an adult, can volunteer with 4-H? How you, as a parent, can get your children involved? Or how you, as a teacher, can incorporate 4-H in your classroom?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, join us this Friday, Aug. 10, from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Agricultural Center, 2727 Old Concord Road, Salisbury, for a 4-H Informational Night to learn more about 4-H.
Rowan County 4-H members, parents and leaders will be available to answer questions you may have. There will also be hands-on activities for youth to participate in. A brief presentation about 4-H will be at 7 p.m.
The 4-H program is the youth component of Cooperative Extension for youth ages 5 to 18. In 4-H, youth learn leadership, citizenship and life skills through hands-on, experiential learning opportunities. Rowan County 4-H offers 4-H clubs, school enrichment and special interest programs. 4-H clubs, which are led by volunteer leaders, meet typically once a month to have a business meeting and educational program. School enrichment programs provide the opportunity for 4-H and local schools to partner to offer classroom enrichment programs. The 4-H Extension Agent provides educational materials, resources and training to classroom teachers. Throughout the year, 4-H will offer a variety of classes, workshops and tours that we call special interest programs.
