4-H Military Partnerships
The 4-H Military Partnership at Kansas State University represents a national partnership of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Land Grant University Cooperative Extension System with U.S. Army Child, Youth and School Services, U.S. Air Force Child and Youth Programs, U.S. Navy Child and Youth Programs, and National Guard Child and Youth Programs. The overall outcome of this engaged partnership is to develop and deliver educational programs that equip military children and youth with the skills needed to lead positive, productive, contributing lives. The 4-H Military Partnership promotes positive youth development by supporting healthy environments and providing opportunities for learning and leadership. For more than 16 years, KSU has led all other academic institutions for the 4-H Military Partnership, with Marlene VerBrugge as the Project Director. KSU facilitates the expertise of Extension 4-H personnel in 47 states and territories to provide research-based knowledge and resources for working with the military audience and supporting 4-H programs for military connected youth.
