University of Wisconsin-Extension programs in 4-H Youth Development give young people a chance to learn new skills, gain self-confidence and contribute to their communities. 4-H youth development educators create real world experiences that teach leadership and citizenship skills.
This is one of the main Kewaunee County 4-H Leaders Association fundraisers and supports the great activities and programs 4-H provides for Kewaunee County youth. This fundraiser helps support Kewaunee County 4-H activities such as Project Day, project and club support, county fair, camps, animal judging teams, leadership conferences, national trips, 4-H literature purchases, scholarships, and many other opportunities. We make these experiences available to all youth in the program regardless of financial situation. The majority of programs and activities are made possible through fundraising efforts like this one. The success of this event is critical to continue the activities mentioned above.

4-H Youth Development programs emphasize:
- Getting youth involved in and excited about civic activity.
- Helping local groups assess and improve their youth development programs and activities.
- Improving youths’ skills in interpersonal relations – communications, negotiations, group decision-making and dealing with conflict.
You can find the traditional 4-H clubs in Kewaunee County, but there are also opportunities for youth to attend Camp Bird, enroll in the 4-H Teen Board and Association, and attend state and national trips.
