Clover Kids

4-H Clover Kids

About Clover Kids

Clover Kids is a once-a-month after-school program for 1st, 2nd & 3rd graders. Provided by ISU Extension and Outreach, Clover Kids is a fun, hands-on, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) focused program that introduces youth to a variety of 4-H concepts and project areas.

Participants will explore healthy living, the environment, social skills, plants and animals, computer skills, science and technology, personality development and expressive arts. Youth explore the world through a do-reflect-apply experiential education approach that encourages cooperation, creativity, teamwork and fun while learning.

The primary goal of the Clover Kids program is to promote children’s healthy development - mentally, physically, socially and emotionally.
