Month of the Military Child- April


In April, we acknowledge and celebrate the dependent youth of military families. The Month of the Military Child is a time to applaud military families and their children for the daily sacrifices they make and the challenges they overcome.

In Hawaii, we serve of military affiliated youth in programs on installation and in our community.

A collaboration of military and land grant university partners who intentionally integrate research-based programs and resources for military-connected youth, families, and communities to thrive.

4-H Military Partnership focuses on positive youth development through providing opportunities for youth to engage in intentional learning experiences. We partner with 4-H educators to provide them the training and resources they need to succeed in equipping the next generation of leaders.

As military families move frequently and experience the difficulties surrounding deployment and reintegration, 4-H provides predictable programming and a safe and nurturing environment for military connected children and youth to excel.
