4H Futures Program

In this webinar, you will learn about the 4H futures program. Since 2002 the Missouri 4-H Youth Futures: College Within Reach Program, has promoted college as an attainable goal for high school youth who are not typically encouraged to attend college, such as first-generation college students. 4-H Youth Futures is an extensive college orientation program that includes on-going local mentoring, college visits and a college orientation conference on the University of Missouri – Columbia (MU) campus. The goal of the program is to help first-generation, marginalized and vulnerable youth prepare for college, attend and graduate. Some of the Youth Futures sites are funded through CYFAR and the National 4-H Council’s National Mentoring Program grant. This is the first year for state replication.

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
