Hands On Skills Development

Hands On Skills Development offers the youth the opportunity to experience a multitude of work activities in order to develop a sense of personal responsibility and pride in his effort. The activities help teach the youth patience, planning, work ethic, teamwork, and valuing the outcome of effort. Success in small projects like raising a 4-H animal for the fair, building a birdhouse or selling produce raised in the organic garden nurtures confidence by giving the youth a taste of the satisfaction that comes from work well done. Other activities such as sports, metal shop, welding or driving a tractor may also be offered to provide exposure to a wide range of experiences.
