Local News

The Cornell Cooperative Extension is set to receive tens of thousands of dollars in state funding to support a new 4-H Youth Outreach Program.

The $45,000 state grant was secured with the help of Senator Rich Funke. The program will provide kids with the opportunity to learn about agriculture-related careers; the connection to food, natural resources, conservation and more.

“We’ll be able to reach a new and diverse audiences and teach young people all about agriculture,” explains Tara Defendorf-Kuba, 4-H educator, Cornell Cooperative Extension. “There’s STEM and math and even social studies when you look at agriculture so it’s just teaching kids about other options that are out there.”

4-H and the Cornell Cooperative Extension partner with local school districts to offer youth programming.
