PRINCETON - Bureau County 4-H invites area youth to enroll in the new 4-H year. 4-H, a program of the University of Illinois Extension, is open to all youth who are ages 5-18 as of Sept. 1.
Illinois 4-H is the largest out-of-school youth organization in Illinois, challenging youth to “learn by doing” with fun, hands-on activities that teach skills for living. Learning opportunities are intentionally designed around four essential concepts necessary for positive youth development: a sense of belonging with a positive group, independence and self-determination, a spirit of generosity toward others, and a wide variety of opportunities to master life challenges.
For more information on becoming a member, please contact Danielle Gapinski, 4-H and Youth Development Program Coordinator, at (815) 875-2878 or e-mail [email protected]
