4-H Foundation benefits kids
Nearly 205,000 youth from around Kentucky, about a quarter of the state’s K-12 population, participate in Kentucky 4-H programs or activities. The Kentucky 4-H Foundation that I chair isdedicated to the financial support of the Kentucky 4-H Youth Development Program.
To help us connect with journalists and the public, we have launched a new website — www.Kentucky4HFoundation.org — and hired Strategic Advisers, a public relations firm based in northern Kentucky.
The Kentucky 4-H Foundation is a partner of the University of Kentucky College of Agricultureand the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service, 4-H Youth Development. The Foundation’s mission is fourfold:
-- Actively assist, advance, and support the Kentucky 4-H Youth Development Program;
-- Encourage and support youth leadership development and education through 4-H;
-- Recognize, support, and assist trained 4-H adult and teen volunteer leaders;
-- Assist in private sector fundraising efforts while nurturing new resources through business partnerships.
I hope you take a moment to visit our new website. You can also visit the Kentucky 4-H Foundation Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/KY4HFoundation) or follow us on Twitter(@KY4HFoundation),
