4-H Youth and Development

Our 4-H program provides a creative and supportive environment in which culturally diverse youth and adults can reach their full potential. Our local reservation program works to develop life skills to help young people become self-directed, productive citizens. We also work to empower adult volunteers who multiply the efforts of our local reservation Extension educator.

The December 1996 tribal census shows that there are approximately 2,500 youth between the ages of 5 and 21. There are four elementary schools, a mid-school and two high schools on the reservation. Two of the elementary schools are public and two are parochial.
