Indiana Inclusive 4-H Resources – Extra-curricular activities such as 4-H can be greatly beneficial to children with disabilities. 4-H activities can be a valuable way to gain new skills such as responsibility, integrity, leadership, and communication. Extra curriculars can also help these children build relationships, explore their interests, and gain a sense of belonging. With some intentional planning, 4-H can be an inclusive program for children with disabilities and their families. The Inclusive 4-H resources provide assistance to Extension professionals and volunteers as they seek to become a more inclusive program.
