4-H Sustainable Communities Project

The 4-H Sustainable Communities Project engages young people in Springfield to provide educational enrichment and promote life skills development. Massachusetts 4-H Science, Engineering, and Technology (SET) Adventures supports after-school at the South End Community Center, the New North Citizens’ Council, and the Dunbar YMCA, and 4-H Educators work closely with the UMass Student Bridges to organize specific themes and hands-on activities. Youth activities focus on topics like polymers, static electricity, chemical reactions, weather, building materials and rocketry.
