2015 NYS 4-H Career Explorations Conference
Starts June 30!!!
Dayna Peck shares how Career Explorations shaped her future
The NYS 4-H Youth Development Program will host over 500 4-H Youth and Adults for its annual 3-day Career Explorations Conference from June 30 – July 2. Motivated, excited youth will connect with Cornell’s dedicated and inspiring faculty and graduate students to learn about education, research, and career pathways that take place on our campus, with a big focus on STEM careers!
Cornell admissions counselors are available to meet with youth, they’ll listen to Ithaca’s Mayor Svante Myrick inspire them to “Get Connected and Stay Connected,” participate in actively, engaged-learning workshops, and get a taste of what college life is all about, especially here at the home of Big Red!
For Cornell faculty, Cooperative Extension 4-H staff, volunteers, and chaperones it is an opportunity to meet and serve the next generation of change-makers, innovators, and community leaders!

4-H Science, Technology, Engineering and Math
What does Science, Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) have to do with 4-H? More than you might think! Check out this page to learn about this mission mandate, access the NYS SET Toolkits, and find out why 4-H is committed to introducing youth to the wonders and inspiration of these three disciplines.
4-H Civic Engagement
Chances are ... if you're involved in 4-H, in other youth organizations, or school programs, you're already doing some type of community service. If you want to learn how to 'kick it up a notch' there's curriculum and resources to help.
4-H Healthy Living
Families today are busier than ever, with more work, school and afterschool activities and scheduling issues. Couple these things with more sedentary lifestyles and more access to quick, sometimes less healthy meal choices and you can easily see the reasons for today's childhood obesity statistics.
