NC 4-H Curriculum Site Up & Running
NC 4-H is 118 years old. That is a powerful statement if you stop to think about it. If you look into the history of 4-H, what you will find is an organizational ability to be flexible and responsive when major domestic or global change happens. This hasn’t changed as our country and world is in the middle of a pandemic.
NC 4-H is responding to the needs of young people and volunteers by way of the internet. Though we might look different, nothing has stopped. Keeping true to the 4-H motto, “Learn by Doing” programs online have also incorporated offline learning so that youth and families can explore content together. NC 4-H has reached existing and new audiences through the Virtual Summer Camp, 4-H Daily Sparks, and Virtual Summer Learning. 4-H youth have participated in long-standing programs online such as 4-H Presentations, 4-H Congress, and Citizenship Focus.
Now as we move into the fall, NC 4-H recognizes the need to push forward into the digital world a little differently. NC 4-H is flexing its muscle to encourage youth and adults to move more outside as we enter into the “Movember” challenge to encourage mental and physical health. Another addition to the fall is the 4-H Curriculum Website.
Cherokee County 4-H Programs have had a great relationship with our Cherokee County School System and its educators through our 4-H School Enrichment programs and this website will help our educators even more.
The 4-H Curriculum website focuses on the 4-H Volunteer and the K-12 Educator. The website offers:
- Flexible digital assets for virtual and face to face learning
- Grab and Go Lessons featuring STEM and Healthy Living
- A Directory of NC 4-H curricula
- Professional Development Opportunities
- Access to local 4-H Youth Development Professionals
Come and visit the website. Visit often as we will be constantly adding curricula opportunities and digital materials.
