Youth & Families With Promise

Welcome to 4-H Mentoring Youth and Families with Promise!


The 4-H Mentoring: Youth and Families with Promise program (4-H YFP) is a prevention program designed to enhance the developmental assets of at-risk youth, ages 10-14. This program targets youth and families who have below-average school performance, poor social skills, and/or weak family bonds. Youth are referred to the program by school counselors, teachers, and administrators, as well as other youth-serving organizations.  This program consists of three components:

  • One-to-one Mentoring – Volunteer mentors work directly with youth to build academic and social skills
  • 4-H Activities – Club involvement serves to enhance social competencies through leadership opportunities, community service, and group project
  • Family Night Out – Group activities are designed to foster family bonds through experiential learning activities
