School Enrichment Basics
Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service 4-H School Enrichment Programs are designed to be used with school curriculum and other youth activities. Programs offered can be used by the school teacher, scout leader, recreation director, church school teacher, home school parent, or any other professional working with youth.
The School Enrichment Programs provide equipment and lesson plans used to supplement the instruction already taking place in the classroom. These programs can save teachers many hours of preparation time.
These programs are available to all educators in McCurtain County. The programs are a part of the total 4-H youth development program, designed to educate boys and girls about the things that interest them. Members of 4-H clubs learn life skills by actually doing project work under volunteer guidance. In addition, 4-H’ers are part of a club in which they participate in leadership and community service activities while having fun. It is a program that involves the whole family. Participants in school enrichment programs are not required to enroll in 4-H.
4-H is a part of the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service, which provides current subject matter from the Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and the College of Human Environmental Sciences.
Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service offers its programs to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age or disability and is an Equal Opportunity Employer
