MSU Extension's goal is that every Michigan child is prepared for a healthy and productive life. Children and youth programming is in five areas: capacity building for youth programs, workforce development, enhancing science literacy, and leadership.
In today’s globally connected world, youth face a number of challenges that will affect their families, communities and future careers.
With a goal of ensuring every Michigan child is prepared with the knowledge, tools and skills to lead a healthy and productive life, MSU Extension’s children and youth programming uses the experiential learning model through which children learn best.
During the 2016 National 4-H Week, occurring October 2-8, Michigan 4-H is encouraging people everywhere to help spread the word about 4-H by participating in the “4-H Grown” campaign on social media.
Life skills are a basic foundation that prepare youth for success in life. The goal is that every youth possess the necessary life skills to succeed and lead a productive life.
