The Kentucky 4-H definition of school enrichment is:  groups of youth receiving a sequence of learning experiences in cooperation with school officials during school hours to support the school curriculum.  It involves direct teaching by extension staff or trained volunteers, including the classroom teacher.

 

4-H School Enrichment can help your schools by:

 

  • extending and enhancing students’ learning with fun, hands-on activities
  • providing an outside source of information that will be a positive reinforcement to classroom teachings
  • providing a different point of view about the same subject matter which may help youth comprehend and apply their newfound knowledge.

 

4-H school enrichment works with urban, suburban and rural communities by providing innovative "learn-by-doing" curricula that makes available an array of topics that revolve around the Kentucky 4-H Core Curriculum.

 

Currently, Breckinridge County 4-H offers school enrichment programs for Elementary, Middle, and High School youth including:
