Mission Statement

The Mission of Extension is to provide information and education, and encourage the application of research-based knowledge in response to local, state, and national issues affecting individuals, youth, families, agricultural enterprises, and communities of Colorado. 4-H is a community of young people across America learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. 4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults.

Description

4-H began a century ago as an educational program for the nation's rural youth. Today, 4-H meets the needs of and engages young people in positive youth development experiences. These experiences are based on the idea that young people should be regarded as resources to be developed. 2010 marked the state centennial of 4-H in Colorado and a renewed commitment to helping shape youth and communities. In looking to the next century, 4-H further develops its programs and continues its motto of "Making the Best Better."

Tech Wizards is a national youth mentoring program providing instruction in emerging technologies, with the goals of increasing life skills such as youth social competency, family relationships and academic success and workforce readiness. CSU Denver Extension 4-H houses Tech Wizards in the Denver area to provide community-based Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STREAM) education programs with a mentoring aspect to serve at-risk youth. The program relies on mentors who lead classes, engaging youth interest in science and emerging technologies to encourage them to apply learning to their STREAM academic instruction and future goals.
