4-H Afterschool Programs

Delaware 4-H offers afterschool programs at schools and community centers in each of Delaware’s three counties.  These programs target at-risk youth; each individual site has its own specific age ranges, target groups and/or enrollment guidelines.

Are students in 4-H Afterschool considered to be 4-H members?  Yes!  In addition to club specific projects and programs, Afterschool members are eligible to participate in all 4-H contests, (link to main projects page) events, (link to calendar) and camps (links to camps page), both at the county and state level, as well as activities associated with the Delaware State Fair (link to state fair page).

How are 4-H Afterschool programs different from traditional 4-H clubs?  In addition to traditional 4-H club projects, Afterschool students participate in projects that they or their club leaders have developed.  Unlike traditional 4-H clubs, Afterschool programs meet daily, during which members get homework and tutoring to help them improve their academic skills, receive nutritious snacks, and have organized recreation time in a safe and fun environment.
