4-H programs across the country have been offering youth opportunities to grow in citizenship, leadership, and life skills for decades. The four “H’s”, which stand for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health are used as the basis for promoting positive development of youth through a variety of fun, educational activities.

During the past year the 4-H After School program has gotten off to a great start at Wyoming Indian Middle School. The kids have done a variety of fun, educational activities such as building rockets, bird watching, cooking, career development, animal tracking, sewing, and even increasing their awareness of various types of disabilities. These youth have been given the opportunity to develop life skills in a safe environment that allows them to interact with their peers in a positive manner.
