Each year at the Monroe County Fair, the CCE-Monroe 4-H team provides a sampling of activities a youth might experience in 4-H. A 4-H Educator will be on-site to answer questions about our program and provide an engaging activity for youth to explore. Club and member projects will also be showcased. In addition, our Alpaca club will provide an animal show, our K-9 Dog Club will provide an obedience demonstration (Saturday), and club members will have rabbits available for youth to pet.
Interested in animals? How about bugs? Have an eye for photography or enjoy cooking? These are just some of the many interests that a young person could find in 4-H.
4-H is a community of young people across America who learn while working with caring adults. The program allows young people to learn by doing—and, in 4-H, they can do just about anything that interests them. The 4-H program is run through each county’s local Cooperative Extension, here in Monroe County this is Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County (CCE- Monroe). Our 4-H program serves all youth living in the City of Rochester and our Monroe County’s suburban and rural communities. Youth have opportunities to participate in interest-based clubs, as well as take advantage of the many events and fun learning experiences provided through recreation centers, community centers, libraries, schools, and parks. Membership is open to young people ages 5 to 18. To learn more about 4-H, please contact our local office at: www.monroe.cornell.edu. Check out our 4-H Facebook page to see all the great opportunities available to youth though CCE-Monroe 4-H. https://www.facebook.com/4HMonroeCounty
