Summer of 4-H SET!
Summer 4-H Programs are now in full swing… and so is 4-H SET. From Aerospace to Robotics, day camps and residential camps are using Science, Engineering and Technology to help teach critical thinking and problem solving skills to Kentucky 4-Hers across the state. Check with your local 4-H Youth Development Agent for more information about what’s going on in your county!

The following link will give you some insight on how the Foundation supports not only 4-H SET, but the entire Kentucky 4-H Program. Please take a few minutes to see how you can support Kentucky 4-H and the over 230,000 4-H’ers who call the Kentucky 4-H Program home.
