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.
The 4-H newsletter, The Youth Connection, is published eleven times a year with information about 4-H club activities as well as public workshops and events. Click on the links below to access the 4-H newsletters.

The Safe Sitter Program gives young adolescents the skills to provide safe, nurturing care for children and to respond appropriately to medical emergencies. It also teaches introductory employment skills and important life skills.
The Greene County Youth Fair is one of very few fairs around the country that offers free admission and entertainment for all ages. The fair celebrates the accomplishments of area youth who will keep our agricultural legacy alive for years to come.
