Nebraska 4-H Gives Back

Nebraska 4-H Gives Back

The Nebraska 4-H Gives Back program is an opportunity for a Nebraska 4-H member or a team of 4-H'ers to make a meaningful contribution to their community. This award recognizes the impact that 4-H youth make in their communities and celebrate the spirit of service-learning, a pillar of the 4-H experience.

To achieve the Nebraska 4-H Gives Back honor, a 4-H member or team must complete a major service-learning project that benefits his/her community. Each 4-H member or team are responsible for the creation, coordination, and implementation of the project. 4-H members should plan on investing over 100 hours of service, and understand that it may take up to 24 months to complete reviewed in a two-step process. Proposals are to be approved by the local committee, and then by a State 4-H Program Adminstrator prior to the start of the project. Upon completion a final report is to be created and approved. 

Recipients will be awarded with a certificate of recognition, as well as, a $100 award to be received.  

Those interested in working on the Nebraska Gives Back programs should contact the Dodge County Extension Office at 402-727-2775.
