Dane County UW-Extension 4-H Youth Development

Who We Are

We teach, learn, lead and serve, connecting people with the University of Wisconsin, and engaging with them in transforming lives and communities.

What We Do

4-H is the youth development part of University of Wisconsin-Extension. Dane County youth and adults learn together to think clearly and make decisions, to care about others, to develop skills for living, and to practice healthy lifestyles. Education happens through 4-H projects, group programs, fun activities, and in-depth learning experiences. 4-H youth and adult volunteers work to improve their individual lives and communities in which they live. Your 4-H Youth Development Staff supports the Dane County 4-H program through:

-Program planning, teaching and evaluation

-The development of effective 4-H units, committees, boards and advisory groups

-Volunteer leadership development

-The adaptation of 4-H programs to meet the individual needs of families and communities

-The development of partnerships with other youth-serving agencies and organizations
