Outreach Programs Oct 2021 thru Mar 2022
The 4-H outreach programs for the coming months are listed here. These programs are thanks to the Jean Hosiko Endowment Fund. Programs are offered for youth from grades K-12. Programs include an educational element as well as a hands on activity that youth can complete during the program. Each program lasts an hour long and we offer programs at various libraries, schools, and youth centers throughout Weld County. If you have a youth who would be interested in attending these programs or if you are a youth organization looking for 4-H to present a program to your youth, please email Patrick Pulis and we can send you a list of current locations and times served: email@example.com.
