4-H Military Programs

In 1995 the Department of Army and United States Department of Agriculture formed a partnership designed to help the Extension/4-H Program to impact new audiences and help the Army meet its mission of providing predictable, consistent youth programs on Army installations worldwide. The goal of the partnership is to build a strong foundation in our military children and youth so that they each possess the necessary life skills to be successful and lead a productive life as well as navigate the special circumstances of being a military connected youth. This is done through hands-on, experiential projects, experiences and opportunities.
