These opportunities help young people enhance their ability to use critical thinking, leadership, communication and social skills - tools that will give them a competitive edge in their future endeavors. This money will be used to supply materials, offer innovative programs, provide scholarships and financial support.

Allamakee County 4-H and its programs empower youth to reach their full potential through caring youth-adult partnerships; hands on, skill building projects and meaningful leadership opportunities.
