Oswego County 4-H Program is open to all youth aged 5-19, who want to have fun, learn new skills, and explore the world. In return, youth who participate in 4-H find a supportive environment and opportunities for hands-on or "experiential" learning about things that interest them. They also get what all young people need to succeed in life--the confidence, compassion and connections with caring adults to make contributions to their communities. The mission of Cornell Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program is to unleash the power of youth and adults through diverse opportunities that meet community needs. 4-H programs are offered in a wide variety of formats and places because they're designed to fit the interests and needs of the diverse young people who live in Oswego County’s rural and urban communities.
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County needs the community’s help and support for this wonderful fundraising opportunity for the local 4-H programs. It simply does not have a large enough stockpile of items to sell.
