This Year's Project: Woodbury County 4-H
Iowa State University Extension and Outreach - Woodbury County is an educational, nonprofit, county government organization that brings research based information and programming from Iowa State University to residents of Siouxland. Our program focus areas include positive youth development (4-H), human sciences (health, wellness, finance), agriculture and natural resources, and community and economic development. We are here to facilitate educational programs and meet the needs of Iowans to create strong communities.
4-H is our largest youth development program with over 500 kids involved in Woodbury County. Clover kids are K-3rd grade and our 4-Her's are 4-12th grade students. We are working hard to get more of our urban, low-income chidlren enrolled in 4-H for positive youth development. This is done through afterschool 4-H programming and special interest clubs that meet on Sundays. Donations through the Siouxland Big Give will allow access to 4-H for all those interested. Enrollment fees are $10 per child and doantions will help to offset this expense for families as well as cover costs for supplies.
Thanks in advance for your consideration of support!
Current Project: Woodbury County 4-H
Woodbury County 4-H provides an opportunity for our youth to become leaders through community involvement and educational opportunities. In addition to our traditional clubs for 4th - 12th grade children, we also have after-school and specialty clubs in Sioux City metro low-income schools. Funds raised through the Siouxland Big Give would ensure that all kids who wish to be in 4-H are able to do so by covering the enrollment fee and supply expenses associated with the program for low-income urban youth.
