UMaine Extension 4-H created this program to provide agricultural education and leadership experiences to Maine youth ages 14–18. Youth involved in this program will have opportunities to pursue their interest in agriculture and explore career pathways. This includes mentoring in post-secondary opportunities, as well as sparking a passion to investigate and explore current issues around food systems, livestock, crop sciences, aquaculture, climate issues impacting food systems, food equity, and more. There is not a requirement to have previous 4-H membership, this program is open to all Maine youth with an interest.
These opportunities will begin with a creation of an online learning community and will also include in-person experiences across the state and on the UMaine Campus.
The program will be virtual with options for limited in-person activities.
