4-H March 2023 Impact

  • The 4th H 4-H Club, a middle school Special Interest 4-H Club, will meet four times throughout February on Saturdays (4th 11th, 18th, and 25th) from 10:00 a.m. – Noon at Plymouth High School! The first hour of each “meeting” will focus on physical health while we meet in the Plymouth High School Fitness Center and move your body and strengthen your muscles to achieve the goals set by each individual participant! In the second hour of the program, we will move to the Culinary Arts rooms at the school to focus on nutrition as we make healthy snacks and meals together. Join local educators, community members, older youth mentors, and your 4-H Youth Development Educator, Sarah Tarjeson, each week for fun and fitness! This club is perfect for current 4-H members AND/OR any young person in grades 7 & 8 who is interested in getting the year and their journey in wellness and health started.
  • In-person training for 4-H Project Leaders to increase their knowledge of available resources, working with varied learning styles of youth and increasing their ability to support youth in partnership with adults.
  • Distributed a monthly newsletter starting in January throughout the year geared for New or 1st Year 4-H Families to introduce various components of the 4-H Youth Development Program, develop a sense of belonging to our organization and build confidence in parents and members as they participate in club and project opportunities.
  • Recruitment of youth participants for the 4-H Fine Arts Festival where youth identify, develop and showcase talents in a variety of art forms. Participation in the arts helps students stay in school, increases motivation, improves attitudes and attendance, and improves academic performance.
