4H and Innovation in Agriculture
Jan 02, 2020 Season 1 Episode 62
Jennifer Sirangelo

“Head, Heart, Hands, and Health,” otherwise known as 4-H, is all about developing young people, a mission that overlaps with the Cade Museum.  Host Richard Miles talks with Jennifer Sirangelo, President and CEO of the National 4-H Council about 4-H’s key role in promoting agricultural innovation in the U.S. for almost 120 years. Partnering with a national network of agricultural extension offices created by Abraham Lincoln in 1862, 4-H discovered that young people are early adopters of technology and great change agents in a pivotal part of the economy. Today 4-H works in many different areas, including STEM education and civics.
