​​Did You Know?.

  • According to the Virginia Department of Education, Virginia has over 80,000 school age military connected youth.
  • Virginia has the highest number of military school-aged children in the nation.

The Virginia 4-H Military Partnership provides intentional learning experiences to help military-connected youth develop life skills needed to cope with military life as well as succeed in life and career.

​As military families move frequently and experience the difficulties surrounding deployment and reintegration, 4-H provides predictable programming and a safe and nurturing environment.  Knowing their children are in quality programs, service members can better focus on mission readiness.
