Impact Story

Emily P

4-H has not only impacted my life, but has changed it drastically. From the moment I stepped foot in my first club meeting, to being accepted into Wisconsin Drama Company, I have always loved it. It's 4-H that teaches you things you won't learn in school.

Katie Ann S

I started out in 4-H as a cloverbud and grew my 4-H career from there. When I was in 7th grade I went to the Wisconsin state 4-H youth & conference. I went again the next year. Then my freshman year I applied for Wisconsin State 4-H drama company. I made it and have grown as a person.

I have known UW-Extension for my lifetime. I was in 4-H for 5-6 years as a child. The last group I joined in my married life was Extension Homemakers, and I learned multiple things for the next 35 years, and five years ago, took the training.

UW-Extension, through the 4-H program, provided excellent education and activities for my four daughters who were involved in 4-H first through ninth grade. They learned much about responsibility and team-building as well as skills in public speaking, record-keeping, and planning.

When I heard about 4-H for the first time, I just thought it was just for farmers. I didn't think I could be in the fair unless I had a cow or chicken to show. I'm now a sophomore in high school, and involved in more 4-H projects than I ever could've imagined.

4-H has taught me so many life skills that school will never teach me things like record keeping and leadership. I like to think that my life revolves around 4-H. From state 4-H arts teams to club events, I have grown so much.
