Cornell Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County
4-H Helps Young People Make a Positive Impact in and beyond Sullivan County
Cornell Cooperative Extension’s mission is to put knowledge to work in pursuit of economic vitality, ecological sustainability, and social well-being. We bring local experience and research based solutions together, helping New York State families and communities thrive in our rapidly changing world.
4-H’ers across the nation are responding to challenges every day in their communities and their world, to “make the best better”.
In 2015, CCESC’s 4-H engaged 17 active clubs, 3 programs, and many Independent Members, with a membership totaling over 300. Clubs include Fetlocks, Incredibles, Moo Juicers, Puppy Pals, Crafty Chameleons, Glen Spey Explorers, Hobby Horse Kids, Jack & Jills, Kenoza Lake Hummingbirds, Running “W” Gang, Small Town Country, Explorers, Animal Science Club, and the Supernovas. Clubs are represented throughout the county, based in Neversink, Grahamsville, Hortonville, Callicoon, Bethel, Jeffersonville, Livingston Manor, Youngsville, White Sulphur Springs, Liberty, Monticello, and Glen Spey. In addition to 4-H community clubs with volunteer leaders, 4-H offers educational programs for specific interests such as Shooting Sports, Teen Youth Development, and Rabbits providing year-round activities and open to all youth regardless of club affiliation. Any community youth may join these programs with 4-H enrollment. Independent Members enroll with 4-H and, as the title suggests, work individually to meet 4-H requirements, with staff support.
To learn about joining or participating in 4-H as a member or volunteer, contact Marylin Jones at 845-292-6180 or firstname.lastname@example.org. More information and forms can be found on the CCESC website at sullivancce.org/4-h-youth-development. Source: www.4-H.org
