Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) fosters youth empowerment from Buffalo to New York City and nearly every community in between. CCE educators provide 4-H programming and experiences to over 300,000 children and teens each year.

4-H is a national organization of associated youth programs and clubs with a broad mission to support kids as they work toward their greatest potential.
New York is also home to a unique and robust 4-H Camp Program. Nine independently operated resident camps and six-day camps host over 10,000 youth each summer. Each camp offers a unique environment and experience.
Through the Strengthening Families Program, educators support families in preventing teen substance abuse and behavioral problems by facilitating interactive learning activities for the whole family.
