4-H Afterschool

Cornell Cooperative Extension Schoharie, in partnership with Cobleskill-Richmondville Central School and Schoharie Central School, provides afterschool programs that serve students in grades K-6. The program serves students at Schoharie Central (grades K-6), Ryder & Radez Elementary (K-6). The programs are funded through parent fees.

The goals of the afterschool program are to enhance a child’s desire to learn, to provide experiences for all aspects of the child’s development, and to provide an environment that is relaxed and enjoyable. The program offers a broad range of interesting, age-appropriate activities that integrate what happens in the school day with less formal learning activities. The afterschool program includes 4-H projects, indoor/outdoor recreation, arts, crafts, games, homework helper, and a nutritious snack. In addition, cultural exposure, conflict resolution, and service learning are a part of the education plan to provide character education enrichment and instill life-long skills. 4-H Youth Development Programs use experiential, research-based educational opportunities to help youth develop independence, a sense of belonging, generosity, and mastery.
