4-H, the nation’s largest nonformal youth education program, made a commitment to help address youth science literacy needs.

4-H Science

4-H Science programs combine the strengths of experiential, hands-on education and inquiry-based science learning with a positive youth development framework that holistically addresses the developmental and educational needs of young people.

By offering engaging science programming in out-of-school time settings, youth are provided with a variety of free choice and hands-on learning opportunities that promote excitement in learning about natural phenomena. The National 4-H Science Mission Mandate emphasizes the need to prepare youth with 21st century skills for the workforce in the areas of science, engineering, and technology.

 

4-H SET Iniative

The California 4-H Youth Development Program launched a statewide 4-H SET Initiative in 2008 with the goal to develop new and strengthen existing programmatic opportunities for California 4-H.
