NYS 4-H HEALTHY LIVING:
FOSTERING A CULTURE OF HEALTH AND WELLNESS
The New York State (NYS) 4-H Healthy Living program engages youth and families through hands-on educational activities that promote a culture of health and well-being within a positive youth development framework. Rooted in the ecological model of youth development (Urie Bronfenbrenner), our Healthy Living program is a holistic one that emphasizes nutrition and fitness, social-emotional wellness, and overall well-being.
The Healthy Living program benefits from a strong partnership among Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Nutrition and 4-H Educators. The Youth Healthy Eating and Active Living Program Work Team (Y-HEAL PWT) is such a partnership that guides Healthy Living programming in New York State 4-H and beyond.
