School Enrichment

The Cecil County 4-H School Enrichment Program provides local educators with the opportunity to bring 4-H into the classroom.  Cecil County 4-H School Enrichment offers school teachers  the opportunity to utilize research based curriculcum focused on giving youth hands-on, experiential learning opportunities in the classroom!

These materials can be used in many ways to enrich the classroom experience. 

- Train-the-trainer opportunities include in-service type classroom trainings on a topic that then can be replicated by the local teacher.

-Educational kits include every material needed for a lesson.

-Outreach programs include a minimum of 6 lessons taught in the classroom by a local 4-H educator.

The 4-H Mission and Vision is to empower youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults and to see a world in which youth and adults learn, grow and work together as catalysts for positive change. The learn-by-doing method of 4-H allows for youth to become productive, contributing, leaders in their community. By bringing 4-H School enrichment into the classroom youth begin to develop inquiry, strengthen their communication skills, become involved in real life, hands-on activities, and learn to work together cooperatively with their peers and adult mentors.
