4-H Means Belonging. Belonging Means All Youth

June is Pride Month 

The Department of Instruction citesWisconsin’s LGBTQ students reported higher rates of depression and suicidal thoughts than their peers” according to the Youth Behavior Risk Survey.  Belonging is a key aspect of 4-H.  We are grateful for our community partners and the work they do to keep youth safe and connected to their communities.  AND we appreciate our 4-H members, families and volunteers who support all youth in our program in large and small ways everyday.
