Discover 4-H - 2nd and 3rd Grade After-School Program

What is Discover 4-H?


Discover 4-H is a FUN 4-H youth program specially designed for children in grades 2-3. The focus is on hands-on learning in small groups. Discover 4-H kids participate in activities, games and other positive experiences to explore areas of healthy living, earth environment, citizenship, plants and animals, computer skills, science and technology, personality development, and expressive arts. 


The primary goal of the Discover 4-H program is to promote children’s healthy development—mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally. The youth and adult volunteers have fun exploring our world through a do, reflect, apply, experiential education approach to learning that encourages cooperation, creativity and fun ways to learn. 


What can your child expect to do in Discover 4-H?

·         Explore science with simple science experiments

·         Strengthen motor skills through a variety of art experience and crafts

·         Have fun learning and playing cooperative games

·         Make friends and learn to work positively in a group setting.
