What are School Education Programs?

These programs are learning experiences offered to students during school hours by local 4-H educators. These programs are designed to enhance the subject matter being studied in the classroom, provide hands-on education, introduce a new topic to students, or spark a new interest!

The Expanded Learning Opportunities program is a great way to connect and collaborate with your local Extension office and achieve your classroom’s educational goals. Our current programs focus on Career Development, STEM, Healthy Lifestyles, Personal Development and Agricultural Literacy and Environment.

We all want our kids to succeed.  4-H programs build their career readiness, autonomy, and independence. Raise Your Hand to vote for Nebraska 4-H to win $20K so more kids in your community can benefit from hands-on learning!
