The Laughlin-Searchlight 4-H Afterschool Program activities for 2019-2020 have begun and they are big this year.
Will Douglas of Extension in Laughlin addressed the program at the recent Laughlin Town Advisory Board meeting. He said that the program is fun and exciting and provides extraordinary learning opportunities in the hours after school.
The 4-H Afterschool Program, along with the other programs within Extension's Nevada 4-H Youth Development Program, offers innovative “learn-by-doing” activities to develop and enhance lifelong skills such as leadership, critical thinking, collaboration, decision-making and civic responsibility. 4-H offers a variety of project areas to participate in and learn from, as well as a multitude of new opportunities to explore and develop personal awareness.
4-H Afterschool develops programs to fit the demographics of local communities and counties. The organization offers support to other youth-serving programs in various formats, depending on the needs and interests of the youth and adults involved.
