Aroostook 4-H is the Aroostook County youth development program of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension. 4-H programs strive to help youth acquire the knowledge, life skills, leadership abilities and attitudes that help them succeed now and in the future. We do this through collaboration, through hands-on, "learning by doing" and by self-directed learning supported by caring adult volunteers. Our educational programs focus on science, engineering and technology; healthy lifestyles, citizenship, and sustainable living.
Cooperative Extension is the pubic service and outreach arm of the University of Maine. Our mission is to help Maine people help themselves by responding to timely issues and needs with research-based information, educational programs, and collaboration with community groups.
