The 4-H club is asking alumni to contribute to the Raise Your Hand compaign and help it win a national competition.

Individuals are considered alumni if they were in a 4-H club, took part in a 4-H after-school program, served as a volunteer leader or taught a project, served as a judge, or assisted with an event. Friends of 4-H are also invited to raise their hands.

“Having experienced our programs first-hand, our alumni know about the positive impact of 4-H,” said Jeannette Rea Keywood, Department of 4-H Youth Development, Rutgers Cooperative Extension and a New Jersey 4-H alumna. Rutgers University is the umbrella organization of 4-H in New Jersey.

As part of the 4-H network being built in the 4-H Raise Your Hand campaign, members will get news about 4-H programs in New Jersey and stay in touch with a program that made a difference in their lives.

The National 4-H program, which currently empowers nearly 6 million youth across the country, aims to extend its reach to 10 million by 2025. It has launched a competition among states to see which ones can add the most alumni and friends to the network by May 15.
