Idaho 4-H Positive Youth Development AmeriCorps

Idaho 4-H Positive Youth Development AmeriCorps aims to strengthen communities by engaging underserved youth including rural, economically disadvantaged and socially isolated youth in 4-H out-of-school time programs to help them build important life skills and impactful relationships with positive adult role models while working with science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics projects.

What is AmeriCorps?

AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs supported by the U.S. federal government, foundations, corporations, and other donors engaging adults in public service work with a goal of "helping others and meeting critical needs in the community.” The Corporation for National Community Service (CNCS) directs the AmeriCorps program with training, guidance and evaluation.
