The 4-H Clover.4-H Youth Development

The 4-H Youth Development Program uses a learn-by-doing approach to enable youth to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need to become competent, caring and contributing citizens of the world. This is accomplished by using the knowledge and resources of caring adults. The goals of the 4-H Youth Development Program are to:

  • Provide informal, educational programs for youth in grades K-13 (one year out of high school)

  • Encourage responsibility, community awareness and character development in youth

  • Strengthen skills for adults working with youth through publications and training

  • Improve community partnerships and collaborations

The Great 4-H Alumni Search

The Great 4-H Alumni Search is on! From High Point to Cape May and Salem to Hackies, the New Jersey 4-H Youth Development Program is searching for 4-H alumni who grew up in New Jersey or who currently live in the state.

Nationally, over 45 million people are 4-H Alumni. Are you one of these people? If so, the 4-H program is looking for you. Our goal is to identify 20,000 4-H alumni within the next year. Help us reach our goal by telling us about yourself and your 4-H experiences. Please visit the New Jersey Great 4-H Alumni Search web page at www.nj4h.rutgers.edu/alumnisearch/ and complete the 4-H Alumni Information Form.

The web page provides an opportunity for you to share your 4-H memories and to find out what is happening with 4-H in New Jersey. You can spread the word about the Great 4-H Alumni Search by telling a friend or family member to log on to the New Jersey 4-H website or call the 4-H Office in your county to request a 4-H Alumni Information Form.

4-H Celebrates Cultural Diversity

This 100-year-old American organization helps keep cultural traditions alive
The 4-H Youth Development Program may have its roots in rural America, but today this vibrant youth organization is helping to keep alive the diverse cultural traditions of many lands through the formation of cultural 4-H clubs.

These clubs are often formed for first-generation American children by immigrant parents. While their parents embrace the American way of life, they don't want to see their children loose the many rich traditions of their homeland. 4-H has provided an outlet for allowing children to learn more about their cultural heritage while at the same time learning important life skills.

In some instances, the children may learn how to perform dances, prepare foods or even learn the basics of a foreign language. And, they are encouraged to share what they have learned with 4-H'ers in others clubs and with the community at-large.

Cultural 4-H clubs provide a learning experience not only for the children who participate as members, but also for the community. Parents and others who provide volunteer leadership for the club have the opportunity to become more involved in their community through 4-H, and the public has an opportunity to learn more about the many cultures that make up their community. It's a win-win situation.

In 2002, 4-H is celebrating its centennial year. If you would like more information on the 4-H program, how to start a cultural club or information on existing clubs in your area, please contact the Hunterdon County 4-H office at (908) 788-1340/1341.

The 4-H Youth Development Program is part of Rutgers Cooperative Extension. Now celebrating its 100th year, 4-H offers educational programs to all youth, grades K-13, on an age appropriate basis, without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or disability. For additional information, contact their website at http://www.nj4h.rutgers.edu/.

Volunteers are Vital to 4-H Program

As President George W. Bush asks Americans to strengthen our nation through volunteer service, 4-H has long recognized the important role of volunteers as this youth development program celebrates its 100th anniversary.

Today, nearly 6.8 million 4-H club members benefit from involvement of more than 638,000 youth and adult volunteers. Volunteers enable 4-H to tap into a wealth of knowledge and resources to help today's youth learn important life skills: how to set goals, make decisions, compete fairly, cope with victory and defeat, and how to resolve conflicts peaceably. 4-H'ers also improve their communication skills, gain workplace competencies and learn to become better citizens through community service.

In Hunterdon County, approximately 400 youth and adult volunteers are involved in such activities and projects as Small Animals, Foods and Nutrition, Seeing Eye Guide Dogs, Pet Therapy, Livestock, Clothing, Leadership, Citizenship and much more!

4-H volunteers can also gain from their experience. 4-H offers a variety of training programs for volunteers that provide information on working with young people, how to make learning fun and how to plan activities. And, it allows individuals to pass on their knowledge and skills to future generations of Americans, building a stronger and healthier society.

The 4-H Youth Development Program is part of Rutgers Cooperative Extension. Now celebrating its 100th year, 4-H offers educational programs to all youth, grades K-13, on an age appropriate basis, without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or disability. For additional information, contact their website at http://www.nj4h.rutgers.edu/.
