What do 4-H Educators do?

Our educator oversees and assists volunteers to run community clubs, afterschool programs, SPARK Clubs, host our county 4-H fair, school enrichment, camps/workshops, and special interest programs are all ways youth across Indiana can be involved with the 4-H program. 

4-H prepares young people to be leaders in their community and around the world through hands-on experiences alongside their peers and caring adults. Backed by a network of more than 6 million youth, 540,000 adult volunteers, 3,500 professionals, and more than 60 million alumni; 4-H delivers research-based programming around positive youth development. 4-H is delivered through America's 109 land-grant universities and the Cooperative Extension Service reaching every corner of our nation.
