4-H After School Programs

What do you get when you combine 4-H programming with area school programs?

4-H After school programs foster a unique combination of fun and learning that helps youth develop lifelong skills, such as leadership, critical thinking, and teamwork. The programs address a growing need for quality after-school programming in the U.S., where as many as 15 million children come home to empty houses after school. Research shows that youth that are at a high risk can greatly benefit from 4-H programming.

To combat this, 4-H After-school programs, provided by Cornell Cooperative Extension Franklin County, offer a wealth of research-based, ready-to-use, "learning by doing" curricula on a wide variety of topics. Cornell Cooperative Extension Franklin County offers programs including:

St. Regis Falls After School 

Bulldog Hour Chateaugay Central School District

Panther Hour Brushton-Moira Central School District
