UF/IFAS 4-H Program Invites COE Faculty Collaborations

The University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) Florida 4-H program annually engages approximately 200,000 young people ages 5-18 in developmental and educational programs. These youth are guided and mentored by more than 7,000 volunteers and UF/IFAS Extension faculty and staff in every Florida county. Florida 4-H staff are interested in exploratory conversations with departments and colleges at UF to uncover mutually beneficial opportunities. If you are interested in community-based engagement with school-aged youth, please contact Dr. Stacey Ellison, Associate State 4-H Program Leader at staceye@ufl.edu.

For over 100 years, Florida 4-H has served as the positive youth development program of the land-grant university system.

Florida 4-H believes that continued success for both UF and 4-H comes from stronger and better articulated ties between UF, Extension, and 4-H, thus increasing the value of all parties.
