Navy 4-H Military Partnerships Project
In 2007, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture, signed an agreement with the U.S. Navy Child and Youth Programs (CYP) to initiate the 4-H/Navy Youth Development Project to provide positive youth development experiences for Navy youth. This project is a collaboration of 4-H National Headquarters, 4-H faculty of Land Grant Universities, and Navy Child and Youth Programs staff.
This partnership links resources of the Land Grant University System in the development of a common mission of positive youth development experiences. To assist Child and Youth Program staff in the development of these clubs worldwide, 4-H program staff support bases through on-site training, technical assistance, and local programming. Through the partnership, every installation CYP works with 4-H staff to offer project choices based on the interests of the local community and to establish and charter at least one multi-project 4-H community club. The 4-H programs and activities at the Navy Child and Youth Programs further enhance and support Navy CYP core programs of Character & Leadership, The Arts, Health & Life Skills, Sports, Fitness & Recreation, Education & Career, and Technology. This partnership provides Navy CYP access to services and materials that assist in providing stability and predictability to Navy children and youth as they move from installation to installation and further develops the strong CYP programs and activities. Further information about the 4-H Military Partnerships can be found under 4-H Military Partnerships.
