Military Veteran Resources

 

4-H Clubs for Veteran Dependents

4-H clubs provide quality educational experiences to military-connected youth using research based curricula for military youth ages 5-18. 4-H clubs in communities across Georgia have opened their doors to veteran dependents. As a parent’s transition from military life to veteran status may cause family moves, or induce reintegration stressors, 4-H clubs provide predictability and stability throughout the child’s life.

Contact your County 4-H Agent for more information on how you can become involved with 4-H!
