The mission of the New York State 4-H Youth Development program is to connect youth to hands-on learning opportunities that help them grow into competent, caring, contributing members of society.

Today, more than ever before, that means providing learning opportunities to youth in our communities in a digital world. The FLX 4-H Learning Launchpad is being "launched" amid the COVID-19 outbreak to offer the high quality 4-H experience that our families value in a safe online environment.

Our objectives are to maintain a sense of connection with 4-H families across the 9 county Finger Lakes Region, connect our research based resources with new audiences, and complement at home learning.

Each weekday at 10:00am, we will post new content to our Facebook page including a variety of content areas, targeted ages, and modes including live stream, prerecorded videos, and informational sheets. This content will be available and stored on this page within 24 hours of its debut on Facebook, please check back often!
