The 4-H School Enrichment projects are designed to enhance classroom education with experience-based learning-the hallmark of the 4-H youth development program for decades. Classroom-ready projects teach life skills as well as specific subject matter.
Program curricula are developmentally appropriate for grades K-12 and many projects meet the Pennsylvania Department of Education Academic Standards.
