It’s painfully clear that while talented kids are everywhere, opportunities to find fulfilling and productive careers are not. 4-H is committed to tackling this career opportunity gap by infusing career connections and skill building in areas like communication, critical thinking, and resilience into all our programs. We are also committed to expanding access to in-demand skills like computer science and engineering in underserved communities across the country.
