Welcome back, alumni! We're still the same 4-H that taught you responsibility, compassion, and the value of hard work, but just like you, we've grown a lot over the years. We'd love to catch you up on what's new and stay in touch about all of the benefits of being an alum.
4-H alumni share a common bond and passion for 4-H. You can keep that connection alive by joining 4-H alumni communities both locally and nationally. Find out what your 4-H friends are doing today, learn about exclusive events and programs for 4-H alumni, and show your support for the next generation of 4-H'ers. Best of all, joining these communities is free!
Nebraska 4-H offers various ways to stay involved in the program. All 4-H alumni are invited to volunteer or donate to your favorite program or event. Be sure to share your 4-H story with us below, and keep in touch through social media.
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.
