4-H Youth Development

4-H Youth Development programming is more than just our traditional community clubs.  We have various methods of outreach in Eau Claire County, from programming in afterschool settings to working with community partners.  4-H is taken right to students in many school districts and classrooms, where it provides enrichment and life skill development to youth-even if they are not members of traditional 4-H.  Our programs also allow us to partner with community organizations, helping strengthen positive youth development in the county.


Sara Novotny is the 4-H Youth Development Agent in Eau Claire County.  Sara has an MS in Agricultural Education from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and a BS in Animal Science-Equine Emphasis with an Ag Business Minor from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.  Her coursework focused on life skill development through agricultural programming as well as animal and agriculture production.
