The Oregon 4-H Outreach Youth Development Education program is committed to the positive growth of the under-served population in Oregon, including children, youth, and adults from all different cultural backgrounds.
We partner with public schools, private businesses, non-profit organizations, professionals, and volunteers throughout Oregon. We provide after-school activities to positively influence youth to pursue a post-secondary education by offering summer camps, conferences, leadership training and clubs and programs programs where kids learn about the US Education System, financial aid, scholarships, and how to apply and prepare for college. Other activities include volleyball, soccer, archery, canoeing, cultural activities, and folkloric dance. We deliver our message about the importance of higher education by connecting with youth and their families with community colleges, universities and resources.
Our program is headquartered at Oregon State University in Corvallis, but we have OSU Extension faculty and staff in every county in Oregon.
