4-H Summer Learning Series

artwork for the 4-H Summer Learning Series (2024)The 4-H Summer Learning Series brings together youth and adults from around the state to learn, connect, and grow through a wide variety of virtual workshops. After its successful launch in 2020 as a response to COVID-19, the program continues to expand the opportunities for young Mainers to engage and learn with 4-H. It also helps to alleviate some of the learning loss that occurs each summer.

The series is made up of more than 20 different workshops featuring engagement-building activities in the fields of arts and crafts, food and nutrition, STEM, marine science and aquaculture, animal science and agriculture, and more. The workshops give kids a chance to get to know the 4-H program and connect with other youth from across Maine. Participants and learn from UMaine and Extension faculty as well as adult volunteers with a variety of expertise.

Volunteers and 4-H staff work together to provide high-quality, hands-on, experiential learning experiences via Zoom. For most workshops, materials are mailed to participants ahead of time, making it even easier (and less expensive) to participate!

Registration is now closed for 2024, but sign up to stay up-to-date with information about next year’s programming!
