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 (state and/or local) staff support bases through on-site training, technical assistance and local programming. This partnership allows 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. As a result of this partnership, every installation CYP is working with 4-H staff to offer project choices based on the interests within local community and establish/charter at least one multi-project 4-H community club. Further information about the 4-H Military Partnerships can be found under 4-H Military Partnerships.
