How to Donate to Kern County 4-H

As members of the Kern County 4-H Sponsoring Committee, we are requesting your support of the young people of our community.  Please take a few moments to consider our request.

There are over 700 youth involved in the Kern County 4-H Program.  They are guided by over 300 adult volunteers.  Members and leaders are working on a variety of projects ranging from livestock production to field crops, home economics, citizenship, leadership, photography, woodworking and many others.

The sponsoring committee budget helps support some of the major events which are held each year and provides opportunities for members and leaders to be recognized for outstanding achievements and to receive additional training.  Additionally, funds are used to promote 4-H in the community to reach more young people and their families.

We believe in the work that is being done in the    4-H program under the auspices of the University of California Cooperative Extension.  We know that 4-H offers young people experiences that will boost their self esteem, give them skills for the future and help them grow into productive members of our community.  Investing in young people not only gives an immediate return by improving their lives, but also yields a longterm benefit to our community and our world. 
Won't you join us in support of the Kern County     4-H Program?
