Sherburne County 4-H Youth Development - "To Make the Best Better"
4-H is Minnesota’s largest youth development organization, growing leaders in every part of the state. Last year, over 300 youth participated in Sherburne County 4-H programs.
The 4-H experience grows leaders with life skills like confidence, independence, resilience and compassion. Youth in 4-H are 2x more likely to make healthy choices, 4x more likely to contribute to their communities and 2x more likely to be civically active. 4-H grows true leaders.
Extension 4-H’s research-based curriculum and learn-by-doing approach is delivered by experienced staff and volunteers to support the positive development of Minnesota's youth. In Sherburne County 4-H, there are nearly 100 volunteers that help make 4-H experiences possible.
Whether 4-H'ers are building robots, raising dairy cows or writing musical plays, they are learning the leadership, problem solving, decision making and communication skills they need to succeed.
Youth who participate in 4-H programs:
Learn by Doing Approach
Effective youth programs do so much more than keep kids busy. Youth learn best when they are actively involved in their learning. 4-H uses the experiential learning model, which involves learning by doing in three basic steps of a continuous cycle: Doing an activity, Reflection on the experience and Applying what was learned in new or different life situations.
4-H’s “learn by doing” model leads to self-directed learning throughout the lives of youth.
Your Support Matters
For many youth across Minnesota, 4-H can be the place where youth learn, lead and build meaningful connections with adults who believe in them.
Sherburne County 4-H Youth Development wishes to expand our program - through offerings and partnerships that help more youth, and their families, to find their place in 4-H.
