A New 4-H Program Comes to Hill City!

Teens in Hill City are laying the foundations of an exciting new 4-H Afterschool program!

Hill City 4-H Afterschool will be a program that promotes hands on learning and positive social relationships between Teen Mentors and youth in grades K-5. Teen Mentors are laying the foundation for 4-H Afterschool by attending training and planning sessions to create a quality youth program.

During the first training, Teen Mentors thought about their own experiences in elementary school programs. They discussed how the actions of the adults leading the program had impacted them. During an insightful reflection, Teen Mentors discussed how reflecting on their experiences will help them create a safe, encouraging environment for the new 4-H members. Hill City youth are sure to have an outstanding 4-H Afterschool program with Teen Mentors like these in the driver’s seat! 

The Hill City 4-H Afterschool program is scheduled to begin at the end of February.
