We are excited to announce that registration for the CEP 4-H Virtual Youth Lab is live and the deadline has been extended. The link to registration is on the attached flyer, as well as below.
The Youth Lab summer program reaches underserved teens in 8th, 9th , 10th and 11th grades from seven (7) urban counties and several rural counties within the State of Texas. The 4-H and Youth Development Unit of the College of Agriculture and Human Sciences at Prairie View A&M University hosts the virtual camp to introduce young people to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers in agriculture. There are two overarching goals of this program:
1.) to increase the likelihood of youth from historically under-served/ underrepresented populations to pursue enrollment in post-secondary education
2.) to provide an awareness of and encourage interest to pursue careers in food, agriculture, natural resources, and human (FANH) careers. These goals are parallel to the mission of S.A.L.E., Inc. by focusing on educating and developing the youth of Texas for careers in agriculture.
The agenda for this program is set up with fun, exciting, and educational activities filled with guest speakers, virtual field trips, VR experience, college tours, and more.
