About

4-H Tech Wizards is a small group youth mentoring program that matches young people with positive adult role models from the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics.

Mentors commit to a weekly year-long match with 3 or 4 same-gendered youth. Matches meet at the school and activities are coordinated by 4-H staff members. Activities could include anything from making slime to building a hovercraft to investigating coding.

This site meets weekly on Thursday after school from 4:15-6:15. Matches continue during the summer break, but times and locations may vary. Additionally, mentors are strongly encouraged to attend the Mentoring Weekend retreat in the summer.
