Is the 4-H Program Right for Your Kid? Find Out At the Broome County 4-H Open House

I wasn’t part of 4-H when I was in school, but pretty much all of my friends were and the life lessons they learned have stayed with them to this day and I know that because it often comes up in conversation all these years later.

4-H is a non-profit charity that offers kids hands-on learning activities in science, citizenship and healthy living. You’ve probably seen the 4-H emblem and wondered what those 4-H’s stand for. The H’s stand for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health and since 1902, 4-H has been educating kids in arts and sciences.

A misconception about 4-H is that only kids who live in farming areas are part of the club, but that’s not true. I grew up in the suburbs and so did my friends who were part of 4-H.  As a matter of fact, 4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization with more than 6 million 4-H members in urban suburban and rural farming communities.

4-H gives people between the ages of 5 and 18 an opportunity to not only network and get to know lots of other good people, but there are very committed adults that are involved in 4-H and that’s a great combination.

If you’re interested in learning how you or your kid can get involved in 4-H, Broome County 4-H will be hosting a 4-H Open House at Cornell Cooperative Extension.  Here’s what you need to know if you want to go:

What: 4-H Open House

Where: 840 Upper Front Street Binghamton

When: Saturday, September 28th from 1:00-4:00pm.

There will be free fun for everyone in the family including bio-fueled s’mores, baby animals, pumpkin decorating, kid yoga and a whole bunch. The kids can meet Max the Binghamton Senators Mascot.
