Union County 4-H Youth packing food for community drive

Next week kicks off the highly anticipated National 4-H Week, during which millions of youth, parents, volunteers, and alumni across the country will be celebrating everything 4-H. Union County 4-H will observe National 4-H Week this year by showcasing the incredible experiences that 4-H offers young people, and will highlight the remarkable 4-H youth in our community who work each day to make a positive impact on those around them. 

The theme of this year’s National 4-H Week is Inspire Kids to Do, which highlights how 4-H encourages kids to take part in hands-on learning experiences in areas such as health, science, agriculture and civic engagement. The positive environment provided by 4-H mentors ensures that kids in every county and parish in the country  ̶ from urban neighborhoods to suburban schoolyards to rural farming communities ̶ are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles and are empowered with the skills to lead in life and career.

We have a variety of events and activities lined up during the week including a robotics workshop, can food drive, National Youth Science Day, and pop up day at the Monroe Tractor Supply. 

To learn more contact the local 4-H office at 704.283.3735 and 704.283.3740.
