4-H offers a wide variety of programs in- and out-of-school. These experiential based, life skills focused activities range from science, engineering and technology topics to more traditional 4-H programming areas. The purpose is to engage youth who may not be enrolled as members of 4-H clubs but are interested in the types of projects 4-H provides and who may consider becoming independent members without a club association. With a wide range of topics to choose from, more youth can find productive environments to spend out-of-school time hours.
Coordinated by University of Vermont Extension 4-H, OMK Vermont helps the community understand the full cycle of deployment and its impact on children and families. OMK provides educational, recreational, and support activities to children and youth of service men and women in Vermont building community connections for kids, empowering teens to share their stories, and helping them educate the community about the realities of the deployment cycle.
The focus of all 4-H programs is the development of youth as individuals and as responsible and productive citizens. In 4-H Shooting Sports 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.
For over 100 years, 4-H has been at the forefront of teaching youth about science, engineering and technology and reaches more than 5 million youth with hands-on learning experiences to encourage young minds and to fill the pipeline of young leaders proficient in science.
