The month of February is Nebraska 4-H Month. Cass County is celebrating the 4-H youth who have made an impact on the community, and are stepping up to the challenges of a complex and changing world.
The Cassgram reports that In Cass County, more than 500 4-H members and 100 volunteers are involved in 4 H.
Recent findings from Tufts University's 4-H Study of Positive Youth Development indicate that young people in 4-H are three times more likely to contribute to their communities than youth not participating in 4-H. Notably, the Tufts research discovered that the structured learning, encouragement and adult mentoring that
4-H'ers receive play a vital role in helping them actively contribute to their communities.
