4-H MILITARY PARTNERSHIPS
4-H National Headquarters at USDA is pleased to have established formal partnerships with Army Child, Youth and School Services, Air Force Airman and Family Services and Navy Family Readiness to support positive youth development education for youth whose parents are serving in the military.
These 4-H Military Partnerships bring the resources of the Land Grant University - youth development professionals, research based curricula, and high quality training and technical assistance--to the youth programs of the military, University and county 4-H staff are serving as project directors, 4-H Military Liaisons, and as youth development and technology specialists on assignment to the Army, Air Force and Navy.
As Military Families move frequently and experience the difficulties surrounding lengthy and frequent deployments, 4-H provides predictable programming and a safe and nurturing environment for military kids.
National 4-H Headquarters relies upon the Land Grant University Extension System across the country to build strong partnerships with Army, Air Force, Navy, National Guard and Reserve entities in order to provide technical assistance and training for military staff and to establish 4-H Clubs for Military youth living on and off installation. In addition, 4-H seeks to serve those children whose parents are serving in the National Guard and Reserve and live in communities with little or not military presence.
