USDA, NAT'L 4-H COUNCIL, EXTENSION AGREE TO REACH 10 MILLION YOUTH
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

The USDA, National 4-H Council and Cooperative Extension have committed to reaching 10 million youth through the 4-H program by 2025.

"It's a big, audacious goal."

Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Stephen Censky was one of the signers of a memorandum of understanding completed during National 4-H Conference in Washington D.C. this week.

"It really recommitted and underscored this great partnership that we have and what our individual and unique roles are in supporting 4-H."

Censky tells Brownfield investment in 4-H is needed to create tomorrow's leaders and each group plans to play a part in the outreach.

"4-H is very uniquely positioned to really address civic engagement and leadership, healthy living and science."

Currently there are about 6 million youth involved in 4-H in the US.
