Chenango County 4-H to increase school enrichment efforts

The Chenango County 4-H Program recently received a boost for its programming efforts when it was awarded one of three funded statewide NYS 4-H Foundation Grant Projects in late December. The grant, written to increase 4-H collaboration with Chenango County Afterschool and school enrichment programs, allows the 4-H program to increase its efforts in bringing hands-on experiential learning to Chenango County students.



The grant, totaling $10,000, allows Chenango County Cornell Cooperative Extension to hire an intern coordinator to work with Extension Educators to plan, implement, and evaluate 4-H Afterschool Programming. Katlin Smith, intern and senior 4-H member from South Plymouth, will be working to bring the Chenango County 4-H After-School Program to school districts, after-school child care facilities, and home school groups throughout the county. She is currently in the process of developing materials to promote program efforts and will begin contacting schools to discuss collaborative efforts between 4-H and school districts.
