Mizzou Collegiate 4-H restructuring to engage all Missouri postsecondary institutions

Columbia– Members of the Mizzou Collegiate 4-H club have voted to create a statewide Missouri Collegiate 4-H Council. The existing Mizzou Collegiate 4-H organization will be a chapter under the new council.

Missouri Collegiate 4-H is open to all college students, from freshman to postgraduate students, regardless of prior involvement in 4-H. Students interested in starting a chapter of Collegiate 4-H at their college or university can contact Eichenburch at 4hyouth@missouri.edu

Missouri Collegiate 4-H provides college students career development, leadership and personal growth opportunities in youth development, said Lupita Fabregas, director of the University of Missouri Extension 4-H Center for Youth Development. By bringing existing clubs under the leadership of one body, she said, Missouri Collegiate 4-H seeks to create a network of college students across the state.
