Mission Statement

The mission of the MSU Extension Wayne County 4-H Mentoring Program is to provide one to one mentoring to the at-risk youth of Wayne County. The program seeks to address the needs of participating youth by reducing the school drop-out rates, improving academic performance, and reducing delinquency. The Wayne County 4-H Mentoring Program encourages youth to develop higher expectations for themselves by fostering healthy relationships with adults, family members, and peers who recognize and support participants' goals.

Description

Since its inception the Wayne County 4-H Mentoring Program has served more than 200 youth through one to one mentoring relationships, workshops, and activities. The Wayne County 4-H Mentoring Program is open to all students in Wayne County between the ages of 10 and 17.
