FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- As students head back to school, Fulton County Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Program will begin the fall session with a list of fun, challenging activities to enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society.
“4-H has been a staple in many communities providing guidance and structure for students,” states Menia Chester, Director of Fulton County Cooperative Extension. “Our program focus is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge and developing life skills through hands-on experiences.”
The Fulton County 4-H Program has offered students fun activities such as going to Cloverleaf Summer Camp (Rock Eagle 4-H Center), taking the Animal Safari Tour and the Cochran Mill Nature Center Tour. Students also receive leadership and communication skills training as well as learn about foods and nutrition, health, energy conservation, and citizenship.
