Youth Development

Brian Alt, Niagara County 4-H

Young people need knowledge, skills, and support to reach their potential as capable, competent, and caring young citizens. Cornell Cooperative Extension’s youth programs connect youth to the resources of Cornell University and the land-grant system, strengthening the next generation of inventors, entrepreneurs and problem-solvers. Activities and events inspire and shape youth, give them opportunities to master skills, enrich their knowledge, and work with others who provide a positive influence.

The Niagara County 4-H Youth Development Program provides young people ages 5-19 with 4-H opportunities in the areas of¬†Animal Science, Arts, Science & Technology, Consumer and Family Science, and the Natural Environment. 4-H’ers “Learn By Doing” to “Make the Best Better”.
