Nebraska 4-HAlumni, donors & friends
This spring, Nebraska 4-H is asking alumni to raise their hands!
We believe that every child deserves the chance to succeed. If you're a 4-H alumni or know someone who is, we're asking for your help in spreading the wor. Together we can help 4-H provide the hands-on learning that empowers kids across America with the skills to handle what life throws at them.
- Raise Your Hand - Complete the form at http://4-h.org/raise-your-hand/
- Compete for Nebraska - Raising your hand is a vote towards a $20,000, $10,000 or $5,000 award for the states with the most alumni hands raised. In Nebraska, this award will be used to reach more youth through science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs.
- Pay it Forward - Tweet, post and share your #4HGrown experience or support and tag fellow alumni asking them to raise their hands for their state.
Help kids learn responsibility, compassion, respect, and the value of hard work by supporting 4-H. Together we can grow the next generation of true leaders!
SHARE YOUR STORY
When you were a 4-H'er you learned how to use your head, hands, heart, and health for the benefit of your community. Now we want to hear how you are using these same 4-H skills today. Tell us how your 4-H experience has impacted your life or the lives of others, and what 4-H means to you.
Through contributions generated from individuals, businesses, corporations and foundations, the Nebraska 4-H Foundation supports educational programs offered by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension 4-H Youth Development, both at the state and county level. An investment in Nebraska 4-H is an investment that reaches every corner of Nebraska – from urban neighborhoods to suburban schoolyards to rural farming communities. With a network of more than 140,000 youth, 12,000 volunteers, 1,200 professionals, and thousands of alumni, 4-H helps shape youth to move our state, our country and the world forward in ways that no other youth organization can.
When was the last time you discovered something new? Nebraska 4-H invites you to make a difference in the life of a young person and discover even more in the process: friends, fun, memories, and special talents! We have a variety of involvement opportunities to fit your interests and availability.
As a 4-H volunteer, your primary goal is to help children and youth develop competency in their projects, confidence in themselves and others, connections in their community, and sound character. You are to help kids do what they are capable of doing. You are to promote teamwork and leadership while helping the 4-H'ers learn and have fun.
