What About 4-H?

How is 4-H Organized?

Many people think of 4-H as an independent organization, but that isn't quite accurate. 4-H is the youth development program of the national Cooperative Extension System, through the United States Department of Agriculture.

This means that your 4-H extension staff members are supported with resources from Land Grant Universities across the nation. Just take a look at our research-based curriculum and you can feel complete confidence in 4-H as a sound, educational organization. And, we've been around for over 100 years!

Your 4-H Extension Educators work for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and serve as faculty members for the University, the Land Grant University in Nebraska. The extension staff members who give primary leadership to the Seward County 4-H Program are below.
