4-H & Youth

4-H Shooting Sports

The focus of all 4-H programs is the development of youth as individuals and as responsible and productive citizens. The 4-H Shooting Sports Program stands out as an example. Youth learn marksmanship, the safe and responsible use of firearms, the principles of hunting and archery, and much more. The activities of the program and the support of caring adult leaders provide young people with opportunities to develop life skills, self-worth, and conservation ethics. Vermont Public Television produced a piece that describes the project very well as part of their Outdoor Journal series.

Make sure to check out the 4-H News and Events for access to a variety of Shooting Sports and other youth oriented opportunities, events, and news!
