Join 4-H today to make a better world tomorrow

| February 25, 2014

COSHOCTON – Coshocton County 4-H is gearing up for 2014 programs and activities, and now is the perfect time to join. Clubs meet throughout the county and 4-H offers projects that meet everyone’s interest areas. 4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization with more than six million youth nationwide building revolutionary opportunities and implementing community-wide change at an early age. A decade-long study completed by a team of researchers at the Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development at Tufts University, Medford, MA found that 4-H youth excel beyond their peers and are four times more likely to make contributions to their communities and two times more likely to make healthier choices. 4-H Youth are also more likely to participate in science, engineering, and computer technology programs.

Coshocton County currently boasts over 200 approved and trained volunteers that provide caring support and help inspire young people in 4-H to work collaboratively, take the lead on their own projects and set and achieve goals with confidence. 4-H’ers chart their own course, explore important issues and define their place in the world.

If you are interested in finding more information about clubs that may meet near you or projects your youth can participate in, please contact the Coshocton OSU Extension Office at 622-2265 or visit us at the County Services Building on 7th Street Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. With over 700 current 4-H members in the county, your son or daughter may already have friends involved in a 4-H club. Join today and become a part of an organization working to make the best better!
