Barry County 4-H
The MSU Extension 4-H Program in Barry County offers educational and fun opportunities to youth from ages 5-19. Adult volunteers work with youth in many project areas learning life skills, developing self-esteem, confidence, leadership and a sense of community pride. It’s a fact: research from the 4-H Study of Positive Youth Development shows kids who participate in 4-H get better grades, are more likely to go to college, and are more likely to give back to their communities.
In 4-H we are committed to helping young people: connect with positive adult mentors and make new friends in a safe learning environment; take the lead in what they do and how they develop; set the pace of their learning; recognize, understand and appreciate diversity; and become active citizens through their service and leadership. All of these things develop skills that will help them to succeed!
We receive funding from Barry County United Way in support of our 4-H Program.
