4-H Centennial Gives Rise to ANR Centennial
As we say goodbye to the 4-H centennial celebrations, May 2014 will mark the 100th anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act, legislation that created Cooperative Extension, a nationwide system of community-based education, established as part of each state’s land grant university. UC Cooperative Extension serves communities throughout California as part of the UC ANR, with 200 locally based Cooperative Extension advisors, 130 campus-based Cooperative Extension specialists, 57 county offices throughout the state, and nine research and extension centers. For a hundred years, Cooperative Extension has brought practical, trusted, science based solutions to Californian communities and provided its youth with valuable educational experiences through the 4-H Youth Development Program.
Do you see a need in your community? Do you know 4-H members and volunteer leaders who work to improve their community? We can help. 4-H members can apply for up to $1,000 to carry out a service-learning project in their community. Revolution of Responsibility Overview
