4-H & Youth Development

All of the youth activities offered by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties fall under the 4-H umbrella, whether they happen after school, in the summer or as a workshop, club, camp or special event. Our programs are offered in a wide variety of formats and places because they are designed to fit the interests and needs of the diverse young people who live in the rural and more urban communities of Columbia and Greene Counties. Over 5,300 young people aged 5-to-19 take part in 4-H activities in the two counties each year.  Download the General 4-H Brochure for more information.  


Ag Literacy Week

In celebration of New York agriculture, each year, for a week in March, volunteers throughout the state read a book with an agricultural theme to elementary students, with a focus on second grade classrooms. Farmers, FFA and 4-H members, adults engaged in a career in agriculture, and engaged in our food system volunteer to enthusiastically engage your students in a paired hands-on activity related to the book to extend learning. The book is donated to the school or classroom library with a bookplate recognizing the donor and our celebration of New York Agricultural Literacy Week. 2,300 books were donated last year while 75,000 elementary students participated in an experiential learning activity.

Enjoy the 2020 event as you watch Kayela from CCE Rensselaer read the book, "Right This Very Minute".
