Welcome to the MSU Extension 4-H Program in Macomb County. 4-H is a learn-by-doing, fun educational program designed to help youth in their growth and development and to complement experiences received at home, school, church and other youth organizations. Our goal is positive youth development that helps young people gain the skills and knowledge they need to be successful. We accomplish this through our 4-H Clubs, 4-H Community Programs, 4-H School Enrichment Programs and the 4-H Youth Mentor Program with the help of caring adult volunteers.
Paper Clover Campaign: Support 4-H Through May 19th!
The spring Paper Clover campaign is May 8-19, 2013! During that time, Tractor Supply Company customers can donate $1 or $5 at the checkout to 4-H. TSC will split 100% of the proceeds between county and state 4-H programs and the National 4-H Council.
Macomb County is very lucky to have two Tractor Supply Company locations to raise funds. Visit either the New Haven location at 57155 Gratiot Avenue, New Haven, 48048, or the Romeo location at 66030 Van Dyke, 48095, from May 8 and May 19, 2013, and purchase a Paper Clover to support Macomb County 4-H programs.

4 - H Clubs
4-H is a learn-by-doing, fun, educational program designed to help youth in their growth and development and to compliment experiences received at home, school, church and other organizations. With the help of caring adult volunteers, 4-H clubs help young people gain the skills they need to be successful.
School Enrichment Programs
MSU Extension works with schools to offer classroom programs designed to complement the learning curricula and help youth develop life skills. Programs are delivered directly by staff as in the Riverside Water Quality Program that links Macomb County middle schools with classrooms in Nepal and indirectly by volunteers as in the Great Lakes Education Program.
The MSUE 4-H Youth Mentor Program has provided mentor services to Macomb County youth since 1991. We match qualified adult volunteers with Macomb County youth in need of guidance, encouragement, and direction. The goal is to prevent youth from becoming more deeply involved with the Court or FIA systems. We are a prevention program, proven to save county tax dollars by diverting youth from more costly levels of care and intervention.
