New 4-H Resiliency Program Launches in March

Starting in March a pilot program in collaboration with KOOTASCA Teen Age Parent Program will take flight. Currently the 4-H Resiliency Program is being offered at the Northern Lights Community School, Grand Rapids Area Learning Center and the Deer River Alternative Learning Program.  This program offered through Itasca County 4-H is led by Extension Educator Courtney Johnson.

This 4-H programming is designed to focus on having young people learn and practice hands-on, Social Emotional Learning Skills. These skills include Teamwork, Communication, Leadership and more. The program will also provide opportunity for young people to connect to a positive community adult.

This programming is scheduled for five weeks and will be held at the Itasca Resource Center. We are excited to have new 4-H members join our program!
