4-H Impact August 2022

  • Advised key adult 4-H Volunteers in the development and editing of their policies and bylaws to ensure their organization reflects best youth development practices.
  • An overnight program for youth grades 7 and up in the Horse and Pony Project where youth participated in several educational clinics to learn horsemanship skills and gain equine knowledge. The goal was to master new skills and increase their confidence in leadership within the project.
  • Collaborated with a partner (Big Brothers Big Sisters) to explore opportunities to reach new audiences and expand our community club program to reach urban youth through positive youth development and mentorship.
  • Plans for the Sheboygan County Fair are ramping up. The Sheboygan County Fair, although not the main event of the Sheboygan County 4-H Program, is a premier opportunity for 4-H’ers to showcase what they have learned all year long. Animal and non-animal projects are exhibited and tools for learning responsibility and sportsmanship. In addition, the Sheboygan County Fair allows our program to host its most significant fundraiser by serving affordable, delicious food and shakes to the public. The 4-H Fair Foodstand also teaches valuable work skills to youth who may be entering service fields within a few short years. We are still actively building our Celebrity Server Schedule. To serve call 920-459-5915.
