University of Minnesota Extension

What We Do

Extension takes the latest research from the University into people’s lives – where they live, work and play. Programming supported by Kittson County involves 4-H Youth Development.

4-H Youth Development – Learn By Doing

Minnesota 4-H provides opportunities for kids to demonstrate leadership that benefits their communities and reflects the principles of democracy. Youth have fun while they learn, grow, and reach their full potential.
  • 4-H Clubs – Join and participate! We offer Community Clubs, Project Clubs, After School Clubs, and Site-Based Clubs.
  • County and State Fairs – Showcase skills and accomplishments of Minnesota youth.
  • 4-H Adventures – Mini-blasts of fun. Try something new in a few hours, an afternoon, or a day.
Contact 4-H Program Coordinator Interim, Kaiya Novacek, for more information.
