This series of educational opportunities will culminate with an in-person celebration at the UMaine Orono campus. Participants’ families will be invited to join 4-H members and staff at a kickoff luncheon for the Maine 4-H Agriculture Symposium which youth participants should plan to attend.
UMaine Extension 4-H created this program to provide agricultural education and leadership experiences to Maine youth ages 14-18. Youth involved in this program will have opportunities to pursue their interest in agriculture and explore career pathways. This includes mentoring in post-secondary opportunities, as well as sparking a passion to investigate and explore current issues around food systems, livestock, crop sciences, aquaculture, climate issues impacting food systems, food equity, and more. Previous 4-H membership is not a requirement. This program is open to all Maine youth with an interest.
These opportunities will begin with a creation of an online learning community and will also include in-person experiences on the UMaine Campus. The program will be virtual with an in-person celebration on April 20th.
