Unbox Your Mind 

When it comes to mental health, it is important to know that different approaches work better for different people. Unbox Your Mind empowers youth to get to know themselves better while learning new ways to identify and manage stress.  

With the Unbox Your Mind Activity Kit you can learn about mental health, either at home or as a club, with resources, tools, and hands-on activities. The kit is available to 4-H youth members and families, volunteer leaders for their clubs, and youth and families outside of the 4-H community who are looking for engaging and educational resources and activities.

Stay tuned for the FREE Unbox Your Mind Activity Book coming soon!

My Plate and the Planet

My Plate and the Planet is an exciting new initiative that encourages youth ages 8 to 16 to explore the food we eat and the world around us through hands-on activities while having some 4-H fun in your own home. The Activity Book has all the background information youth will need for learning about the food we eat, with instructions for exciting hands-on activities that build upon learning at home or as a 4-H club.
