John Jobe: 4-H Youth Development

Riley County 4-H Extension agent John Jobe covered historical ground, explaining how extension agents got started and how 4-H fits into it. 4-H students learn by doing. Currently there are 375 youths in local 4-H clubs, and 85 registered volunteers. He discussed ideas of keeping 4-H fresh and relevant by continuing to appeal to students of all backgrounds and socio-economic status, and using volunteers well to provide interesting programs. They are having a garage sale to raise funds for a trip to Washington. More information in photos.
