Outreach - Cecil County 4-H Tech Wizards

                           

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) supports the initiatives that assist in the development and maturity of community programs providing mentoring services to high-risk populations under the 4-H National Mentoring Program. The goal is to reduce juvenile delinquency, drug abuse, truancy, and other problems and high-risk behaviors. The program objective is to provide direct one-on-one mentoring, group mentoring, or peer-mentoring services to underserved youth populations.

Cecil County 4-H received grant funding to replicate Oregon State Univeristy's 4-H Tech Wizard program.  This program uses Science, Technology, Engineering and Math to develop the core principles of positive youth development to improve the well-being of at-risk youth ages 8-17, especially underserved populations while establishing strong meaningful relationships with their adult mentors.

Currently Cecil County 4-H has a Technology lab located in the Elkton Housing Authority communities of Rudy Park and Windsor Village.
