Program Goals and Outcomes

Juntos 4‑H has three goals:

  • See more Latino youth benefit from 4‑H programming
  • Build relationships with Latino communities so they benefit and become involved in 4‑H and other Extension programming
  • Empower Latino families with the resources needed to achieve their educational goals for their youth.
