2016 Career Explorations Conference!
For over 90 years, the New York State 4-H Office has hosted the annual Career Explorations Conference on the Cornell Campus. Nearly 500 4-H youth and chaperones—from across NYS and NYC--will attend the action-packed, three-day event held June 28-30, 2016, to immerse themselves in exploring their future education, career opportunities, and to experience Cornell University and campus life! Cornell faculty and graduate students conduct engaged-learning workshops in two age-specific tracks:
1) Focus for Teens programs for youth entering grades 10-12
2) University U programs for youth entering grades 8-9
Over 20 programs are offered to help youth understand and engage in activities related to what a particular career field entails, what type of education they would need to pursue, and to learn from the experiences and career trajectory of the Program Facilitators.

4-H Civic Engagement
Chances are ... if you're involved in 4-H, in other youth organizations, or school programs, you're already doing some type of community service. If you want to learn how to 'kick it up a notch' there's curriculum and resources to help.
4-H Healthy Living
Families today are busier than ever, with more work, school and afterschool activities and scheduling issues. Couple these things with more sedentary lifestyles and more access to quick, sometimes less healthy meal choices and you can easily see the reasons for today's childhood obesity statistics.
