EUGENE, Ore. — The Oregon State University Extension Service says it will open enrollment for its 4-H Youth Development Program.
OSU Extension says it will open enrollment to Lane County residents on October 1.
“It has taken a lot of work to get 4-H reestablished in Lane county” said John Punches, Regional Administrator for Extension Service in southwest Oregon. “We lost the program for nearly three years following funding cuts, but we’ve been able to build a new program through tremendous community support.”
4-H is a nationally recognized program that provides hands-on learning activities for young people in grades K-12. It features a broad range of project areas, including animals, science and technology, arts, outdoor activities, cooking and canning.
OSU Extension says it’s also looking for adults to volunteer as 4-H leaders.
